Twin Islands

Brand Description

A single minded focus on Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc has allowed Nautilus Estate of Marlborough to produce this refreshing, crisp, intense style for decades.  Twin Islands Sauvignon Blanc offers an approachable wine in the classically recognisable Marlborough style at exceptional value by Nautilus Estate since 1992. 

Location of Vineyard

Over the last twenty years, we have selected specific vineyard sites that produce distinctive aromas and fruit driven palates from the stony river beds and windy hillside sites of Marlborough. Our grapes are 100% from the stunning Marlborough region and have the intense, grapefruit and tropical flavours for which the region has become world famous.

Winemaking Philosophy

Our winemaking is sympathetic and non-interventional, allowing the Sauvignon Blanc grape's true characters to shine through. Blending is used to build the aroma and palate profiles, which produces well rounded wines that represents the classic Marlborough style. All our wines are sustainably produced and vegan friendly.

“An expressive nose of mangoes, dragon fruit, peaches and sage. Medium-bodied. Juicy and tart with a fluid finish.”
— acclaim for 2022 Twin Islands Sauvignon Blanc from James Suckling, Oct 2022
"Passion fruit flavors and fresh herb notes of lemongrass and verbena are fresh and light, with a crisp finish and good intensity."
— acclaim for 2017 Twin Islands Sauvignon Blanc from Wine Spectator, Aug 2018
"Fragrant scents of fresh apple combine with some passion-fruit notes to make this refreshing in a sweet way. The acidity is a little metallic, needing white sausages to bring it in line." (Best Buy)
