"Fabulously fruited and instantly appealing, the wine shows ripe peach, rockmelon, lemon peel and subtle watermelon notes on the nose, leading to a delightfully flavoursome palate offering juicy fruit flavours and silky texture. It's gorgeously framed by refreshing acidity, making it immensely appealing."
94 POINTS - SAM KIM, WINE ORBIT
"Pretty pale-pink colour. Quite a floral influence with orange blossom and white rose petal together with raspberry and cherry. A crisp, dry rosé in a pleasingly refreshing, mouth-tingling style."
93 POINTS - BOB CAMPBELL, MASTER OF WINE
"Can you even believe the gorgeousness of this bottle? It shouldn’t matter, but lordy! It looks like money on the table, right? Happily the wine inside is just as crisp, crunchy, yet also opulent and exotic. I love the highwire elegance of the aromatics and the cherry blossom, white peach, raspberry razziness. Jules calls her top-tier wines OTQ, which is short for ‘On The Quiet’ – but she needs to rethink that because the noise they make on release means they sell out super-quick. Thai chicken larb? Stop it."
TASTE THE OTQ ROSÉ WITH JULES.
"Pomegranate...watermelon... spiciness..." Listen to Jules describe the flavours in the On The Quiet Pinot Noir Rosé.
The grapes for this Rosé were grown in the Branken Hill Vineyard, which is nestled in the Hawkesbury area of Marlborough’s Southern Valleys. This Pinot Noir is grown specifically for Rosé, as opposed to using the more common, but less well balanced saignée method of production.
Jules Taylor’s OTQ wines are a challenge to conventional winemaking interpretations of Marlborough signature varieties, as well as a personal indulgence for Jules.
