Tay­lors’ sig­na­ture St An­drews wines are wor­thy of any spe­cial oc­ca­sion

Whitsunday Times - - LIFE - WITH PETER CHAP­MAN PETERCHAPMANPW@GMAIL.COM

ALL artists have a sig­na­ture. A mark that sig­ni­fies ev­ery­thing they stand for in a few el­e­gant strokes. For lead­ing Ade­laide wine­maker Tay­lors, its St An­drews re­leases are that sig­na­ture. Ev­ery bot­tle is a tes­ta­ment to Tay­lors’ wine­mak­ing phi­los­o­phy and a show­case for its hand-crafted ap­proach to wine­mak­ing. The first Tay­lors St An­drews wines were re­leased in 1999 and have de­vel­oped a rep­u­ta­tion as bench­mark ex­am­ples of great Clare Val­ley wine. As its flag­ship, St An­drews is only re­leased in the finest vin­tages. The lat­est St An­drews re­lease will again be seen as wines to save for spe­cial oc­ca­sions or just when you want to spoil your­self.
