SAUVIGNON BLANC

Grassy, summery and supercharged with citrus, just the way Jules loves it.

PINOT GRIS

Bold, dry deliciousness and peachy perfection in the perfect party pour.

PINOT NOIR

Fickle and demanding, yet dangerously good Marlborough Pinot Noir

GRUNER VELTLINER 

Imagine the illegitimate lovechild of Pinot Gris texture and Riesling fragrance. Give gruner a go!

CHARDONNAY

Elegant and fresh, reflecting the beauty of the vineyard, without the winemaker's boots stomping all over it.

THE JULES ROSÉ

The colour of rose petals and raspberries mixed to a perfect pink. Pour yourself some Summer in a glass!

JULES TAYLOR ON THE QUIET SAUVIGNON BLANC 2021

"This is a stunning rendition of the variety, showing fabulous complexity and refinement. The engaging bouquet shows fig, rockmelon, mango and grapefruit aromas with nuances of cashew and oatmeal. The palate delivers terrific weight and power, while remaining lively and vibrant. Wonderfully textured and beautifully flowing to an impressively long, mouth-watering finish. At its best: now to 2031."
