Jules Taylor was born in Blenheim in the early 70s, just as the fledgling local wine industry began planting its first vines. 

In 2000, Jules was appointed winemaker at Kim Crawford’s Marlborough Winery and appreciation of her style of winemaking led to the brand’s explosive international growth in the five years of the new century. Concurrently, Kim insisted that she make wine under her own label, and the first vintage of Jules Taylor Wines was in 2001

Jules left in Kim Crawford 2008 to focus on her own brand full-time with her business partner and husband, George Elworthy. Since then her Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay and Late-Harvest Sauvignon Blanc have received many awards and citations and the prestigious International Wine and Spirits Competition named Jules Taylor Wines New Zealand Producer of the Year 2013.

Small production, ultra-premium wines.

Jules focuses on single blocks of ultra-premium Marlborough fruit in order to express the elegant terroir of this prized growing region in New Zealand. While Jules owns no acreage, she has exclusive contracts with growers who farm to her specifications and she regularly visits the vineyards in the months leading to harvest to check on the fruit.

Jules divides her time between the enjoyable rigor of winemaking with raising the couple’s two children, Lui and Nico, and enjoying the numerous athletic opportunities afforded in the Marlborough region.

Tasting Notes
COLOUR Soft yellow. NOSE Refreshing Lemon aromas infuse delicate white peaches with a soft vanilla touch. PALAT E A vibrant wine bursting with lemon and white peaches with a delicate coating of vanilla and a tingly white pepper bite. It provides a nice dry backbone yet is layered and creamy with soft acidity and nutty nuances. It is bright and fresh with great richness and texture from the wild ferment and provides a particularly long, harmonious finish.
Winemaker Notes
The best way to describe Grüner Veltliner is as a cool climate wine hailing from the Austrian slopes. The name’s a bit of a mouthful so we just call it Gru Vee - Jules
Food Pairing Notes
Tuna tartare with wasabi aioli or seafood salads with an Asian twist and salads with apple, kohlrabi or cucumber. If you’re a traditional master chef try zucchini linguine with herbs or chicken Breasts with rosemary and thyme.
