Some notes on Mount Rozier: The Mount Rozier estate, founded at the turn of the 19th century, is a beautiful, buzzing landscape of indigenous flora and fauna, and home to Mount Rozier’s abundantly characterful wines.

Every wine has a sense of place, and each label in our Reserve range tells a story from the farm, and is named after real people, places or wildlife. The vineyard itself is named for its founder, Annie Rozier, a flower merchant who picked wildflowers in the surrounding Schapenberg Hills and produced medicines for the local community.

Today, our family-owned vineyard and winery focus on minimal intervention, sustainable and ethical farming practices and uncompromising quality. For our unwavering commitment to conservation, we are delighted to have been named a WWF Conservation Champion earlier in 2021.

In the vineyard
The grapes are harvested at 25°balling. Hand picking ensures that only the very best fruit enters the cellar.
In the cellar
Upon arrival at the cellar the grapes are pre-chilled before processing. Once chilled they are gently destemmed, and the berries cold soaked for two days before fermentation can occur. Open fermenter tanks are filled with whole berries and it allows for a slow extraction of tannins and an intense fruit driven profile. Punch downs are done by hand to ensure delicate tannins in this wine. After fermentation, extended maceration on the skins is allowed for 2 weeks. Extended maceration allows the components to mesh and achieve greater harmony. Tanks were gently pressed, and the free run wine was racked into 5,000 L wooden barrels for 6 months to extract light notes of wood characters.
Pairing suggestions
Beef, lamb or poultry. Ideal with meats cooked on the grill
