Jules Taylor OTQ Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2017 in Gift Box

A wine that wraps its arms around you and won't let go.

This wine has a complex nose of peaches and cream with hints of apricot danish pastry, combined with papaya, brazil nuts and just a touch of smoky reduction. Rich and opulent, this wine has lashings of macadamia and spice from barrel fermentation and just the right amount of smokiness, whilst retaining beautiful, concentrated citrus and stone fruit flavours and an elegant backbone of acidity. This is a powerful, brilliantly structured wine with a long, complex finish.

95 Points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "A magnificent offering; the engaging bouquet shows rockmelon, lemon peel, nougat and hazelnut characters with a hint of flinty complexity. The palate is concentrated and fleshy, delivering delectable fruit flavours with stylish oak infusion, wonderfully framed by refreshing acidity. The wine is gracefully powerful and splendidly long and attractive."

Complimented by poultry based dishes, also crayfish and other rich white seafoods.

OTQ means 'On The Quiet.'

The Mendoza Clone parcel was pressed straight to barrel for a wild fermentation. The Clone 95 was split into two parcels, one fermented wild, and one inoculated with M2 yeast. All the wine went through a full Malolactic fermentation to soften the acid profile before maturing in barrel with occasional lees stirring for nine months. The result is a tiny 70 cases of exquisite, complex, harmonious Chardonnay.
