Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc 2013
I was lucky enough to taste this at a recent New Zealand wines masterclass and it really knocked my socks off. It’s from Marlborough, Jim, but not as we know it. It’s more…well….it’s just MORE. More elegant, more persistent, more exciting, and more minerally than most others from the region.
The talented Jules Taylor grew up in Marlborough, and is now mum to two young boys. So she’s uniquely positioned to fully understand just how important Sauvignon Blanc is to the motherhood of the western world. And you can taste it in every delectable and mood improving sip.
First it entices you with wafts of citrus aromatics, and then it beguiles you with a clever play of minerality, steely-ness and plenty of ripe nectarine. With just a faint but welcome hint of green herbs and a long and mouthwatering finish. Another glass please!
