Marlborough, New Zealand

Fresh, sweet and fruity white shimmering with divine notes of honey-baked pears, apricot, preserved lemon and exotic spices.
Chill well and live large by pairing with lobster and roquefort gratin.
This Sauternes-like "sticky" is made wholly from Marlborough Sauvignon grapes that get picked late (May - this is the southern hemisphere) and which includes plenty of berries desiccated and fructified by kindly "noble rot" Botrytis cinera. Alcohol is a dainty 11.5% and residual sugar (indicated by RS in wine) is a lavish 168 grams per litre, versus 5-10g/l for common garden Kiwi Sauvie. 
Jules Taylor did a postgrad course in winemaking/viticulture at Lincoln before working a number of vintages in Piedmont, Sicily, Australia and Cloudy Bay. She then took a permanent job at Marlborough Valley Cellars, where she was mentored by Kiwi wine industry vets Kim Crawford, Simon Waghorn and Matt Thompson. They encouraged her to launch her own label and, in 2001, she did, making her first 200 cases of Jules Taylor wines. The rest is history!
