Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The World Ranking of Wines and Spirits (WRW&S) award Taylors as the most awarded winery in the world for 2017- the first time this has been achieved by any Australian winery.

OurPhilosophy… At Taylors we really believe ‘The wine is everything’ and it isthis simple mantra which provides the corner stone to our wine-makingphilosophy and is behind every decision taken within the business. It was asingle wine - a first growth Bordeaux - which inspired Bill Taylor to take theplunge and to purchase a block of land in the Clare Valley and set aboutcrafting a quality wine, which reflected the terroir and could rival its ‘oldworld’ Cabernet Sauvignons. Almost four decades later, the company remainsfamily owned and the philosophy unchanged. Admittedly, the winery now plants alittle more than just cabernet sauvignon – with nearly 750ha of vineyards inthe Clare Valley, the family excels in a number of different varieties to makeup its extensive, award winning portfolio – from terrific value, everydaydrinking wines to the finest Australian wines at the pinnacle of theTaylors portfolio. And the same philosophy runs religiously through the familytree today. Following his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, thirdgeneration winemaker Mitchell Taylor is well aware of his heritage, and passionatein its continuance. A blend of ‘old world’ estate philosophy and ‘new world’winemaking innovation, combined with an almost fanatical attention to detailand obsession with quality, has kept this dream alive, and resulted in wines oftremendous style and quality. This philosophy has also resulted in a rangeof fine wines which regularly receive awards and accolades in Australiaand on the highly competitive world stage. Since its debut vintage of 1973,Taylors wines have won more than 2,000 medals and awards internationally –which certainly attests to the family’s belief that ‘the wine is everything’,and is also the realisation of Bill Taylor's original dream…

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.
  • The records or documents authenticating such an object or the history of its ownership.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
