The Jules Rosé Rose 2020

Best known for her much-loved Jules Taylor Wines, Jules has made Rosé since 2009 (way back before EVERYONE made Rosé!). This year however, she is giving it a makeover (don’t we all feel like one after lockdown?!).

“The Jules Rosé” is handcrafted for anyone who dares to be different and is all about celebrating your own individual sense of style - But without taking yourself too seriously of course.

THIS BOTTLE OF “THE JULES ROSÉ” IS HANDCRAFTED TO CELEBRATE YOUR INDIVIDUAL SENSE OF STYLE. BUT WITHOUT TAKING YOURSELF TOO SERIOUSLY OF COURSE.

Aromas and Flavours

This rosé wine is bursting with summer fruits: raspberry, pomegranate, papaya and mango sit alongside yummy hints of poached rhubarb and vanilla cream. Fresh and fruit-packed, gorgeous raspberry and pomegranate flavours sit alongside typical notes of strawberries and cream. The delicious juicy acidity and dry finish make this wine an ideal summer’s day sipper and will leave you reaching for another glass. Serve chilled.

Perfect for hot weather drinking, this wine is a great match for tasty summer salads - try watermelon, feta and mint, or a traditional Italian caprese salad. It is also fantastic served chilled with raw or lightly cooked shellfish or fish.

VINTAGE NOTES

Warm spring temperatures this year lead to bud break ten days earlier than usual, followed by an early, quick flowering. The last substantial rainfall of summer was mid December. January was dominated by ash from the Australian bushfires drifting across and causing some cooler cloudy weather to keep the vineyards green.  However, the season warmed up heading into February, meaning the grapes went through veraison in very good, clean condition. and the later part of the season was fairly dry with just a few light showers through March. In the last week or so the nights cooled off, allowing extra time for flavour development heading into harvest. Merlot grapes for The Jules Rosé were picked on 14th March, similar to last year, and thankfully well ahead of the country going into lockdown. The weather played its part superbly and the mild, dry conditions meant that the fruit was harvested in perfect condition.

VINIFICATION

It was an early morning start for The Jules Rosé harvest. Bunches of merlot were picked in the first hours of daylight so that the grapes would stay fresh and flavour-packed in the cooler morning temperatures. Once at the winery, the grapes were crushed and the juice kept in contact with the skins for the briefest of periods to  allow the delicious flavours and beautiful pretty pink colour to infuse into the juice. Jules then gently pressed it off the skins and kicked off the fermentation with an aromatic yeast. Temperatures were kept cool to preserve the delicate aromas. At the end of fermentation, the wine was stabilized and given a light filtration to preserve the beautiful pink hue and sealed with a screw cap for maximum flavour and freshness!

Jules has made rosé since 2009 (way back before EVERYONE made rosé!).
This year however, she  decided it was time to give it a makeover.

“I just love rosé” says Jules “it signifies happiness in a glass and after all the doom and gloom of 2020 I decided I needed to focus on something fresh and positive.”
