Jules Taylor Pinot Noir 2020



Incredibly generous nose that hums with swish scents of violets and plum, mingled with dark, dried fruits and cheerful, sweet-spice notes from the wood. The wild ferment and extended maturation have added layers of complexity to the gorgeous raspberry and plum characters found on the palate. A joy!

Enjoy on its own or pair with roast pork shoulder or chicken.

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.

  • Wine Spectator

    "Ample spice and sarsaparilla flavors give the core of ripe, fleshy cherry and

    wild berry flavours...Ripe, plush and fleshy on the finish."

  • Dish magazine

    "The judges were impressed with the inky magenta colour, highly floral complexity, nice acidity and surrounding fleshy layers edged with dried herb notes. This is an excellent example from one of Marlborough’s most exciting winemakers."

  • Decanter

    "Pretty aromas of raspberries and violets that are bright and charming."

  • Wine Spectator

    *Top 100 Wines in the World* 

    "Fragrant and ebullient, with caramel and vanilla bean accents to the core of ripe black cherry and plum flavors, balanced by velvety tannins and dark chocolate nuances. Expressive and generous on the long finish."
