Jules Taylor worked at Cloudy Bay and was mentored by Kim Crawford before launching her own label more than 10 years ago. Her Sauvignon Blanc is accessibly styled relatively soft and approachable, with a citric-herb nose.
In branching out to begin The Better Half project, George set out to create a range of wines that would be both food friendly and showcase the unique flavors of Marlborough, New Zealand. He settled on two grape varieties to achieve this, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
Sauvignon Blanc, the signature dish of this wine region known for its punchy aromatics and zesty fl avors, is the perfect foil for fresh seafood and summer salads. Pinot Noir is an emerging star in Marlborough. With new plantings on the clay soils of Marlborough’s southern hills this variety has found a happy home. Coincidently, so too have many deer and wild pig, which are found roaming in the upper slopes of thehills around Marlborough. They make a perfect combination – in glass and on plate!
