The Taylor family has hosted a stunning dinner for 50 of their close friends and Sydney personalities to celebrate 50 years of the family-owned winery. The evening saw the unveiling of Taylors Wines highly anticipated release, The Legacy 2014.

Key faces in attendance included Kerri-Anne Kennerley, Sam Harris and Luke Hunt, Tom Derickx, Rebecca Vallance and David Gasan, Cameron Daddo and Alison Brahe-Daddo, Rugby 7’s Ed Jenkins, Steve Flood, Nick Hardcastle, Matt de Groot and Lucy Polkinghome, who enjoyed an evening of exquisite food and fine wine set amongst the masterpieces of the Art Gallery of New South Wales iconic Grand Courts.

The Legacy 2014 is a wine three generations in the making and the very special night was hosted by members of the third generation winemaking family Mitchell Taylor, Justin Taylor and Clinton Taylor.

Managing Director and Winemaker Mitchell Taylor speaks of The Legacy, “This is a wine that speaks to our founding purpose – to craft new world wines that stand tall against those iconic wines of the old world. The event was a moment for us to reflect on an exciting 50 years, but also celebrate the setting of a new benchmark for future generations of Taylors to come.”

The night’s menu was curated and matched to Taylors Wines by the Chiswick at the Gallery team. Guests were welcomed with Taylors St Andrews Chardonnay 2017 and Taylors St Andrews Riesling 2012 paired with whipped goats cheese and basil tarts. This was followed by an entrée of pork pâté, pear, fig and sourdough served alongside a flight of Taylors St Andrews Shiraz 2010 and Taylors St Andrews Shiraz 2014, showcasing the evolution of Taylors Wines’ luxury shiraz production.

The hospitality continued as Taylors served each guest a glass of first growth, Grand Crus Bordeaux from the famed Château Lafite Rothschild – a wine that inspired the founding of the Clare Valley producer. This wine set the stage for the anticipated unveiling of The Legacy 2014, which was paired with a bespoke dish of lamb loin, caramelised onions, artichoke and blackberry.

The night culminated with a selection of Australian and international cheeses, as guests enjoyed a glass of the yet to be released Taylors The Visionary Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 (awarded the World’s Best Cabernet in 2018).

Only 1,080 individual bottles have been created of The Legacy 2014. This extremely rare wine will be available in select markets from 1 May in fine wine retailers and Taylors Cellar Door for $1,000 RRP.
