Tasting note... 2022 Jules Taylor Chardonnay RRP $22.99


2022 Jules Taylor Marlborough Chardonnay RRP $22.99

This is the jewel in the crown of the new releases from Jules Taylor in Marlborough. Rich, creamy, smooth, full bodied, totally dry in taste with citrus flavours but complex oatmeal and toasted almond notes coming through in every long, succulent sip.

Another Chardonnay that shows a hint of how great New Zealand Chardonnays can be. This wine is exceptionally well balanced, expressing ripe Chardonnay characters without the reliance on hefty portions of new oak, which remains relatively low at 10% in this full bodied but silky textured dry white.
