Jules Taylor Pinot Gris 2015

Marlborough, New Zealand

Amazing generosity and oomph here in a Kiwi white that sings with sassy lychee and guava notes, fleshed out by juicy peach and creamy nougat characters. Brilliant fruit, with bright flavours, juicy acidity and dazzling panache. 

Pair with spring rolls or honey-lemon chicken.

The berries for this lush white come from the Lower Dashwood and Lower Wairau subregions of Marlborough. A portion of the crop was hand-harvested, with the balance machine-picked in the chill of autumn dawn. Pinot Gris is actually the same grape as Pinot Grigio (prosaically, 'gray berry') but wines labelled 'gris' are stylistically richer, more full-bodied and flavoursome, and higher in alcohol.

Zoology graduate Jules Taylor (who was born the year the first vines were planted in Marlborough) did a postgraduate 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 veterans 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!
