As Chair of the Rosé Rocks! competition I wanted to give you an update on goings on.
We have had a tremendous response to this new, exciting, and innovative competition. A hearty thanks for the enthusiasm.
There have been a number of relevant queries from different wineries and we’d like to share the answers with everybody.
What Rosé wines can I enter?
Q: Can we enter a Blanc de Noir?
Q: Can we enter a Mourvèdre Rosé?
Q: What about a Shiraz Rosé?
Q: And a Pinot Noir Rosé?
So to clarify, this is a Rosé wine competition for wines made in South Africa. Rosé wine, for the purposes of this competition, is a wine which has a pink colour. The shades can go from a pale tinge of soft salmon pink right through the spectrum to a vibrant hot pink. The wine can be made from any red grape from Pinotage to Pinot Noir and from Shiraz to Cabernet Sauvignon - there's no limit.
If you are unsure about your wine entering this competition, please don’t hesitate to email or telephone us (021 671 0751) to check. We’d be happy to help.
There were many people wanting to know if there will be stickers for the winning wines. The answer is a resounding YES.
Best Rosé Wine Label Design
We are very excited to announce that along with the judging of the wine itself, there will also be an award for the Best Rosé Wine Bottle Label.
This competition will be judged by a separate expert panel. No matter what category your wine is entered into, your label is automatically entered into the running for Best Rosé Wine Label Design.
There will be prizes for first, second and third place.
Please keep sending in your entries.
We have a great team putting this competition together and, we are here to help you in any way possible.
Cheers to rosé!
