Wine of the Month: Jules Taylor

October 9, 2017

We're proud to showcase Jules Taylor as ONYX's Wine of the Month for October.

Jules Taylor Wines, at home in the beautiful Marlborough region of New Zealand, is an accredited and sustainable vineyard. They source their grapes from vineyards in the Wairau and Awatere Valleys, Marlborough.

 

Jules Taylor, (who is a real person, as you'd hope, with a business named after her), is the wine maker, the visionary behind the business.

 

"Marlborough is Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc is Jules Taylor’s obsession. She likes the unique expression of the region. She likes its vibrancy. She likes drinking it. And she loves making it. The Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc won the Champion Sauvignon Blanc trophy at the Air New Zealand wine awards in 2007, and again, in 2010. A happy coincidence? We suspect not".

 

 

Let your meal complement your wine

 

Jules Taylor Rose
Matched with Pork Belly or Risotto, $11·oo glass

 
A favourite lunchtime wine. The wine you can drink and not question. Fruit sweetness and a glorious blush like the setting sun on a warm summer’s evening. 

​​
Jules Taylor Pinot Gris 
Matched with Chicken Fettucine or Butter Chicken Pizza, $ 11·oo glass

 

Marlborough Pinot Gris has come a long way over the last few years. The new grape clones planted in the last 6 years have been producing beautiful little berries which are full of concentrated flavours of spice & stonefruits. This adds lovely layers of complexity and aromatics to the Pinot Gris. 

 

Jules Taylor Gruner 
Matched with Sichuan Spiced Calamari or Market Fish, $ 11·oo glass 
​​

The best way to describe Grüner Veltliner is that it’s a cool climate wine somewhere between an aromatic white and a chardonnay.  Pale yellow in colour, this delicious wine has a delicately perfumed nose, showing green apple, white fleshed nectarine and floral notes with a hint of spice.
