While known for her top-selling Sauvignon Blanc, Jules Taylor has also been something of a rosé trailblazer since 2009. For her 2020 vintage, Jules crafted a beautiful expression from Merlot grapes grown in Gisborne and sourced from a long-time family friend. In selecting Merlot and Gisborne, Jules found the vibrant strawberry notes that she sought for her rosé. It comes in a beautifully illustrated bottle that speaks to the hands-on approach to grape selection and flavours. Thankfully, these grapes were picked and safely back in the winery well ahead of New Zealand’s first lockdown. 2020 is a miracle vintage, in terms of the conditions that the wine was produced under, as well as the quality. A beautiful rosé bursting with summer fruits – dry, delicate, delicious.
