2020 Jules Taylor Pinot Noir

Marlborough, NZ

Unreal buying for fans of NZ Pinot Noir, this little bargain is a perfect mid-week tipple.


A pristine, well-made pinot.

About The Wine

It's increasingly hard to find well made, delightful Pinot Noir that won't bust your wallet right open. It's hard but not impossible.

This easy-drinking offering from killer winemaker, Jules Taylor, delivers a lovely glass of Marlborough Pinot Noir at a very reasonable price. She absolutely knows how to deliver a dangerously delicious Pinot.

It shows fresh berries and dark cherry notes, a hint of subtle earth and a fresh, vibrant finish. It's spot on for your mid-week Pinot Noir.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Pinot Noir is the rising star of Marlborough and the variety that most expresses the differences from season to season. Grown on the southern hills in clay soils, this Pinot is well rounded with oh-so juicy flavours of cherry and black Doris plum. The wild fermentation along with extended lees maturation have added complexity and texture to the dark fruits and the finish is dry with a nice touch of dark chocolate and spice.

Blend : Pinot Noir (100%)
ABV : 13.5%

Critic Reviews

The Real Review

"Medium to full red/purple colour, bright. The bouquet has beautiful fragrance, intense and fresh, boasting bright red and darker cherry aromas, raspberry bonbons too, while the palate is medium-bodied and slightly sappy in its flavours and tannins. Good; better in a year or two, perhaps. A pristine, well-made pinot." - Huon Hooke (The Real Review)

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
