Jules Taylor ‘OTQ’ Sauvignon Blanc 2020
On-The-Quiet Sauvignon Blanc is Jules’ take on a fumé blanc, Sauvignon Blanc vinified in old French barrels as opposed to stainless steel tanks. Crafted from hand-picked fruit from her Plunkett Vineyard in the lower Wairau subregion of Marlborough, the resultant wine represents a unique interpretation of the Marlborough Sauvignon style.
Pale lime-gold, this white exudes finesse in an intriguing fusion of soft peach, honey and guava, lightly seasoned with flickers of oaky caramel and pecan. Concentrated and silky, with a long, fine finish.
Limited edition, i.e. we genuinely don’t get much of it, so if you like the sound of it, snap it up!

Producer: Jules Taylor
After years of winemaking and vintage experience worldwide and at various Marlborough cellars, Zoology graduate Jules Taylor (who was born the year the first vines were planted in Marlborough) launched her eponymous label with 200 cases in 2001.
Jules completed a postgraduate course in winemaking / viticulture at Lincoln before working a number of vintages in Piedmont, Sicily, Australia and Cloudy Bay. After taking a permanent job at Marlborough Valley Cellars, she was mentored by Kiwi wine industry veterans Kim Crawford, Simon Waghorn and Matt Thompson who encouraged her to launch her own label, which she did in 2001.
Five years, two children and a few thousand cases later, Jules Taylor Wines was officially established and is now an internationally-recognised wine brand with multiple awards and worldwide fans.
