Wine company Taylor Made has introduced two new red wines to its craft-focused range.

Taylor Made Wild Ferment Pinot Noir 2017 and Taylor Made BDX 2015 (Cabernet, Merlot, Malbec, and Cabernet Franc) have joined the new vintage releases of the Taylor Made Malbec 2016, Chardonnay 2017 and Pinot Noir Rosé 2017.

The Taylor Made range, launched last year, highlights the heritage behind the Taylor family’s first foray into the wine industry as publicans.

The two new wines are designed to match Australia’s modern cuisine, according to MD Mitchell Taylor.

Demand for Pinot Noir on Australia’s wine lists is growing strongly across all price points, according to Wine Business Solutions’ latest Wine On-Premise Australia Report 2018.

And, while smaller in share and value than Pinot, Australian Bordeaux blends have experienced some growth in the on premise, up by a two per cent share in the last year.

Each of the new wines has an RRP of $25.
