Jules has been awarded 2021 NZ Winemaker of the Year by Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine


Winery notes (2021 Vintage)
"Chardonnay is one of the unsung heroes of Marlborough but also a wine that can divide the room! Jules’ take on this variety is a far cry from the big buttery Chardonnay-bombs from the 1990s. Instead Jules prefers a wine with delicate freshness and attractive fruit flavours that express the vineyards in which they were grown. With only 10% new oak and a partial malolactic ferment, this elegant wine that will convert even the most die-hard chardonnay-basher!

Intense aromas of dry grass, nectarine and apple peel entwine with notes of brioche and toasted macadamia nuts. Jules says the scent evokes “rolling in the hay at the end of Summer”!

Just lovely on the palate. Ripe, rich, tropical flavours are balanced by crisp citrus notes and refreshing acidity. Barrel aging has added complexity but this holds hands nicely with the fruit and meshes together into a silky palate and a delicious, lingering finish."

4 Stars Michael Cooper (2020 Vintage)
"Already very enjoyable, the 2020 vintage is a single-vineyard wine, grown in the Southern Valleys and partly hand-picked and barrel-fermented. Fresh, weighty, harmonious and well-rounded, it has vibrant, ripe, peachy, citrusy flavours, subtle mealy and biscuity notes adding complexity, balanced acidity and great drinkability."


Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, January 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Nicely complex and alluring bouquet with aromas of ripe white and yellow fleshed stone fruits, red apple, quince, honeysuckle and grapefruit. Other aromas stem from oak with scents of vanilla and baking spices – vanilla and a touch of clove. There’s a fine toasty quality as well adding complexity and depth. On the palate – weighty, smooth and fine with a satin cream texture, contrasting acidity and bite of oak. Flavours of fruits are at the core with tree, stone and citrus fruits all speaking. Coming into balance, refreshing and lengthy. Youthful, well made and best enjoyed from mid 2021 through 2026."


Yvonne Lorkin, January 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Seductive aromas of roast, ripe peach and grilled grapefruit merge with crushed almond, a lick of butterscotch and smoke and each sip is a juicy mouthful. Medium bodied and showing refreshing acidity and a long, creamy finish. Yum!"


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2019 (2018 Vintage)
"A wonderfully composed chardonnay; the inviting bouquet shows yellow summer peach, rockmelon, nougat and roasted hazelnut characters with a hint of brioche complexity. The palate delivers excellent fruit weight and intensity, backed by stylish oak infusion and silky texture, leading to a lingering creamy finish. At its best: now to 2022."
