Jules Taylor Grüner Veltliner 2016

19.99

Description

Limpid, faded-blonde hue and a flowery, super-inviting perfume of ripe nectarine, lemon peel and orange blossom. The silky palate is beautifully balanced between bright primary fruits, light peppery spice and crisp mineral acidity. Fabulous juice.

Unique aperitif or partner for Asian chicken salad with wasabi dressing.

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.

Initially, Jules Taylor Wines emerged as a little moonlighting project with a mere 400 cases. 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.

Reviews

  • Wine Spectator

    "Poached pear and nectarine flavors are sophisticated and focused in this white that is appealing for its juicy finish and satiny-smooth texture..."

  • Decanter

    Steven Spurrier recommends: "Clear and clean with white pepper spice and a lovely texture that's crisper than most Austrian versions."
