First Stolen Kiss of Summer Launches this Weekend


Central Otago boutique producer Rockburn Wines releases its highly anticipated Stolen Kiss Rosé at daylight saving this weekend.

Kiwis’ taste buds are evolving and it’s exciting to see how they are getting more and more confident in choosing a Rosé that’s right for them. As one of New Zealand’s first premium Rosé producers Rockburn has been a trendsetter in the category for years while keeping a close eye on consumer demands.

Just like Kiwis’ palates, their Stolen Kiss Rosé is evolving and this year the team crafted a dryer and lighter style for wine lovers to enjoy as “the first kiss this summer”. While the 2019 vintage has a Provence-inspired, peachy look, its flirtatious and fruity character certainly hasn’t changed.

Get ready for love at first sight! This blushing beauty wins you over in a heartbeat with its delicate cherry perfume, followed by a sensual strawberry kiss. All lovingly wrapped up in long and heart-warming hug, leaving you with a feeling of pure pleasure and delight!

But Rosé lovers need to be quick as the limited-edition wine usually sells out by the end of summer.

Stolen Kiss Rosé 2019 will be available in selected fine wine stores and restaurants, the Rockburn Cellar Door,  and online via Rockburn Wines from 29 September (RRP: $30.50 750ml bottle | $69 limited edition magnum).
