Jules Taylor Sauvignon Blanc 2018
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Appearance: This wine is pale lime in colour.
Aroma: Vivacious tropical aromas of passionfruit burst from the glass, mixed with zingy accents of kaffir lime and subtle herbaceous notes of tomato stalk.
Flavor: With mouth-watering intensity, the palate embraces concentrated flavours of passionfruit and citrus and carries subtle hints of blackcurrant leaf. These flavours linger giving a long, well-rounded finish to the wine.
Pairings: Any seafood dishes, baked or raw, with buttered green beans and scalloped potatoes.
Jules Taylor's 2018 Sauvignon Blanc seems to capture the sunny, tropical-fruited side of Marlborough in its hints of mango and gooseberries, then balances that with just a tiny bit of Awatere leafiness and acid spine. It's medium-bodied and plump, with decent length and broad-based appeal.
Less brash than many in this category, this wine's aromas range from tropical and stone fruits (guava, pineapple and peach) to wet stones, grass and flower blossoms. Still young, the fairly searing acidity is somewhat balanced by a slippery texture and bright fruit.
Light and peppery, with lemon-lime flavors, a touch of grapefruit zest and a crisp finish. Drink now. 10,000 cases imported.
