Allan Mullins here with an update on Rosé Rocks!, South Africa's newest wine competition.
This is the 3rd email you will have received from me and I hope you are enjoying reading about the progress this wine competition is achieving.
The entries continue to stream in and we'd like to convey our many thanks to you for this. To those you who haven’t entered yet, make the leap and join us on this innovative journey.
Details on how to enter are on our newly launched website - click here.
There have been a few more queries and we'd like to share the answers with everybody. We love the questions so please keep them coming!
Q: Can I enter my wine even though it's of a higher sugar level?
A: Yes, you can. Wines over 5.1 g/l go into the semi-sweet category.*
Q: Can I enter a box wine?
A: Absolutely! The wines for this competition are being poured out of sight so no problem there.
Q: Does it cost extra to have the wine label judged for the wine label design competition?
A: No it does not. Once your wine is entered into the competition in whichever of the 3 categories, you will automatically be entered into the wine label design competition.
We are rocking it on Twitter (@RoseRocksSA). Come along and have a chat with us!

I really believe the Rosé wine category has been overlooked in this country and now it's Rosé's time to shine. The growth potential is huge.
