South Africa’s first ever rosé wine competition has been launched, chaired by industry personality, Allan Mullins.

Called ‘Rosé Rocks!’, this competition seeks to recognise excellence in rosé winemaking and to promote the South African rosé category.

9 top South African wine judges will pick the best rosé wines made in the country.

Whether your taste is for a bone dry, pale pink rosé, or something a little sweeter with a bit more body, this increasingly popular style of wine has something for everyone. Rosé is the fastest growing category of wine in South Africa. Sales have trebled between 2007 and 2014.

Allan Mullins commented, “This is an exciting development for consumers and winemakers alike. There’s no doubt about it, rosé wine has sex appeal! It’s also the most versatile of wines, great for sociable occasions and it really works well with a wide range of foods.”

Judging will take place on the 9th September 2015. Results will be announced shortly afterwards. All wines being entered have to be produced in South Africa.

Following the announcement of the winners there will be a wine tasting open to the public.
