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.
"Full-flavoured Rose with strawberries and cream appeal."
"Jules has such a talent for crafting that lovely strawberries and cream perfume...Great stuff."
