Jules Taylor ‘The Jules’ Gisborne Rosé 2022 $25

Paired with Annabel Langbein’s Black bean and bacon soup in the NZ Herald CANVAS Sat 17th June

This is one of those hearty, ribsticking, salivatingly salty soups that screams out to be paired with a plush, plump, punchy rosé like this new release from Jules Taylor. Based in Marlborough, Jules has travelled northward to Gisborne to find a few tonnes of ripe, plummy merlot with which to fashion into a rosé with enough weight and body to bounce through even the frostiest of winter days. Deliciously dry with bright berryfruit notes, soft pepper, dried herb and redcurrant characters – it’s a lipsmacker with this beany, bacony soup. Julestaylor.com
