Rockburn announces newest release of Stolen Kiss

Rockburn Wines has announced it will release its highly anticipated Stolen Kiss Rosé at daylight saving on 30 September 2018.

The 2018 vintage of this popular Rosé will quickly make up for the stolen hour this weekend, allowing wine lovers to celebrate the arrival of longer, sunny days with the #firstkissofsummer.

Made from grapes stolen from their highly-awarded Pinot Noir, Rockburn has been one of the first wineries in New Zealand to take the pink tipple seriously, creating a cult-like following with their off-dry, blush Stolen Kiss Rosé for several years now.

“Stolen Kiss greets you with candy-floss and crème-brûlée aromas, leading into a flirtatious toffee-apple and simmering strawberry palate smeared with cherry lip-gloss,” says Winemaker Malcolm Rees-Francis.

By sharing their #firstkissofsummer moment via Facebook, Instagram and Twitter before the end of October, Stolen Kiss lovers also have the chance to win a $250 Superette voucher.

Stolen Kiss Rosé 2018 will be available in selected fine wine stores and restaurants and online via from 30 September (RRP: $29.99 750ml bottle | $55 limited edition magnum).
