Jules Taylor Marlborough Grüner Veltliner 2023 $24

Paired with: Figs, Endive & Hazelnuts in the NZ Herald Canvas Magazine Sat March 2 2024

The combination of subtle sweetness of ripe, juicy figs, moreishly toasty hazelnuts and the crispy, bitter, crunch of the endive leaves is all sorts of excellence in the mouth, but take a sip of this homegrown version of an Austrian classic to wash it down with, and you’ll experience a sensory spin-out. Bursting with soft apple, layers of lemony energy and Ford Falcon-loads of florals, this vibrant, aromatic, juicy-textured wine measures up to this dish on the flavour and art front.
