The signature dish. When Jules talks about Sauvignon Blanc, clouds part and celestial choirs sing. This is the wine Jules loves because it is so expressive of the site where it’s grown. It’s a grape that, within a row – and even within a bunch – has a mind-blowing range of full-throttle flavour, just the way Jules likes it.
Pale yellow in color. Intense, vibrant aromas of passionfruit, lime zest and lemongrass leap from the glass, supported by notes of freshly crushed herbs and a touch of wet-stone minerality. This upfront, in-your-face drop captures the essence of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Passionfruit and lime zest flavors combine with mouthwatering intensity and juicy acidity, giving way to a long, zesty, lip-smackingly good finish.
Try it alongside a salad of tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and fresh herbs, or for something more substantial try crispy skinned snapper fillet with warm puy lentils and a herby lemon sauce.
