The Paper Nautilus Sauvignon Blanc

Marlborough producer Nautilus Estate has launched a single vineyard The-Paper-Nautilus-Sauvignon-Blanc-NVSauvignon Blanc in the UK – The Paper Nautilus. The wine is produced in small batches and represents “an intimate knowledge of our estate vineyard site gained over 30 years”, said winemaker Clive Jones. He continued: “This is the result of hand-picked fruit from a single site that was fermented on solids at a warmer temperature in a large old oak cuve. The resulting wine has a more subtle fruit expression and greater textural qualities than the classic style.”

The name comes from the argonaut pelagic octopus, known as the paper nautilus, which while preferring tropical and sub-tropical waters is occasionally carried south by ocean currents to the cooler waters off New Zealand. The nickname ‘paper nautilus’ comes from the paper-thin white shells the creatures are encased in, one of which is depicted on the wine label.
