Working at Marlborough Valley Cellars gave Jules treasured insights into what grew finest where, as a result of such a cross-part of the area’s grapes got here across its presses. She stayed the course and conquered the curve, but after 18 months decided it was time to see extra of the wine world.

Jules Taylor Sauvinon Blanc has a radiant gentle yellow hue, tinged with green and the dominant flavours are fresh and natural layered over ripe tropical fruit & citrus notes. A nice line of acid ensures the flavours are focussed and leads to a fragile yet persistent finish with underlying mineral tones. Refreshingly dry with a delicate, well-roundedness and drinkability. Gushing with peaches, pears and a creamy mouthfeel. I would name this luscious, in every sense of the word.
