Jules Taylor Wines

Rosé 2009

This is the wine that’s our least serious wine. It’s not serious in nature – it is serious in flavour.

It’s the lunchtime wine, the one that you can drink and not question. It’s the condensation-beaded glass, fruity, slightly sweet and that glorious blush redolent of a setting sun on a warm summer’s evening. 

Winemakers notes

This wine is loaded with intense raspberry and strawberry flavours, providing a lingering fruit filled finish. Aromas of strawberries and cream spill out of the glass and are complimented by intense raspberry and tamarillo hues.

Vinification

This is the first Rosé produced by Jules Taylor Wines and the result is a delight. Made from grapes grown in Gisborne and picked in the cool of the evening, the harvest was quickly crushed and the juice remained briefly with the skins to evoke vibrant red colours and the wonderful aroma. A gentle press and settling was followed by a long, cool fermentation with selected yeast strains. The wine has been sealed with a screw cap to lock in the fresh fruit flavours.
