The Jules Rosé 2021

21.00

Description

The smell of summer in a glass, this dry Merlot rosé is packed with flavour and delicious juicy acidity.

The grapes for this wine come from silt/clay loam soils in the beautiful Patutahi Valley in Gisborne, the first wine region in New Zealand to see the rising sun each morning. Bunches of Merlot were picked in the first hours of daylight so that the grapes would stay fresh and flavour-packed. Jules then gently pressed it off the skins and kicked off the fermentation with an aromatic yeast, temperatures kept cool to preserve the delicate aromas.

Pale salmon pink in colour, loads of ripe raspberries, strawberries, watermelon and nectarines sit alongside yummy hints of vanilla and peach melba yoghurt, a lingering finish making this an ideal summer’s day sipper.

A great match for tasty summer salads, try it with a plate of fresh tomatoes and basil drizzled with olive oil.

Producer: Jules Taylor

After years of winemaking and vintage experience worldwide and at various Marlborough cellars, Zoology graduate Jules Taylor (who was born the year the first vines were planted in Marlborough) launched her eponymous label with 200 cases in 2001.

Jules completed a postgraduate course in winemaking / viticulture at Lincoln before working a number of vintages in Piedmont, Sicily, Australia and Cloudy Bay. After taking a permanent job at Marlborough Valley Cellars, she was mentored by Kiwi wine industry veterans Kim Crawford, Simon Waghorn and Matt Thompson who encouraged her to launch her own label, which she did in 2001.

Five years, two children and a few thousand cases later, Jules Taylor Wines was officially established and is now an internationally-recognised wine brand with multiple awards and worldwide fans.
