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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
COLOUR Pale straw. NOSE Enticing aromas of stone fruit, Packham pear and zesty grapefruit are combined with delicate floral notes and hints of freshly toasted nuts. PALATE A lovely textural wine with stone fruit flavours of apricot and nectarine. Essences of Packham pear are layered over subtle warmed butter and nut characters derived from the partial wild ferment and yeast lees ageing which also imparts a richness that carries through to a lingering dry finish.
Winemaker Notes
A snazzy little people-pleaser, our Pinot Gris is designed to freshen and delight. I get on well with Pinot Gris because she’s adaptable - Jules
Food Pairing Notes
Packham pear, blue cheese and crushed walnuts on a bed of Mesclun or pan-fried salmon with fennel hearts pan-fried in garlic butter.
