Description

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
100% Sauvignon Blanc from vines averaging 9 years. Grapes were handpicked early in the morning to retain the delicate fruit flavours.
In the cellar
Bunches are hand sorted, destemmed and crushed as gently as possible. After crushing the grapes, then undergo 6 hours of skin contact inside of the press to enhance flavour extraction. The juice is settled until clear before racked and cold fermented (10 – 14 ˚C) for almost 1 month in stainless steel tanks to enhance the typical varietal characters. After fermentation, the wine is left on the lees for 5 months with regular lease stirring before racked, fined with bentonite and cold stabilized in preparation for bottling.
Pairing suggestions
Softer palate flavours like poultry or soft cheeses
