Winemaker Notes

This wine is pale lime in color. Vibrant tropical aromas of passionfruit and mango leap from the glass mixed with zingy accents of citrus and herbs. Subtle sweet and tangy hints of yellow sherbet fizz are intriguing. Lip smackingly delicious! The palate embraces concentrated tropical fruit flavors of passionfruit, pineapple and with tones of citrus, complimented with fresh lemon-grass. Juicy and dry, with nice acidity, the wine makes you salivate whilst the flavors linger. Match with any seafood dishes, baked or raw, with buttered green beans and scalloped potatoes.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Jules Taylor's 2018 Sauvignon Blanc seems to capture the sunny, tropical-fruited side of Marlborough in its hints of mango and gooseberries, then balances that with just a tiny bit of Awatere leafiness and acid spine. It's medium-bodied and plump, with decent length and broad-based appeal.

COMMENTARY: The 2018 Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc emphasizes bright fruit and a well-textured palate. TASTING NOTES: This is a beautiful example of the quintessential New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. Its piquant aromas and flavors of tart citrus and dried herbs should pair nicely with gravlax and capers. (Tasted: May 3, 2019, Treasure Island, CA)

You can’t have a wine label named Jules Taylor without having a Jules Taylor. Jules is the eponymous winemaker, Marlborough’s Queen of Sauvignon Blanc and a godmother to several hundred thousand little grapes. Born and bred Marlburian, Jules has seen the transformation that the wine industry brought to the region and has a deep understanding of the interplay between the grape and Marlborough’s variety of climates and soils. She also spent much time travelling the globe’s other wine producing areas, working 5 vintages in Italy and three in Australia. Upon her return home, she slotted straight into a job making wine for some of the most acclaimed brands in the country, and eventually branched off to create her own label under the mentorship of Kim Crawford in 2001. More than a decade later, the little moonlighting project has grown into an internationally recognized label and the brand Jules Taylor became synonymous with high quality, premium Marlborough wine.

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.
