Better Half Sauvignon Blanc
Appellation: New Zealand
Jules Taylor, one of the most celebrated Sauvignon Blanc growers in the world, has worked for over ten years developing the Jules Taylor Wines brand into an award-winning label. George Elworthy, Jules’ significant other, or better half, designed The Better Half to share his spin on an the zesty varietal and we can’t get enough of it! The 2019 Better Half Sauvignon Blanc has vibrant fruit aromas of peach, nectarine and passion fruit along with intriguing hints of thyme, green bell pepper, and grass. This quintessential Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc is incredibly lively on the palate with citrus green apple and generous layers of mouth-watering tropical fruit flavors. Experiment by comparing this New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc to The Ranch Wines Wild Turkey Sauvignon Blanc for an interesting tutorial on how terroir affects fruit. Both are drastically different and equally enjoyable in their own way!
Enjoy with fresh mussels sautéed in a white wine and garlic broth topped with a sprinkle of parsley. Or enjoy classic Kiwi style with homemade chunky chips with flaky sea salt and fresh pan fried groper with freshly squeezed lemon juice.
