Recent Awards & Accolades for Mitre Rocks and Locharburn
2007 Mount Dottrel Pinot Noir won the Bouchard-Finlayson Trophy
for the best Pinot Noir at the 2009 London International Wine
& Spirit Competition.
Locharburn Central Otago Pinot Rosé 2009::
A very clever colour and aromatic combination. You can smell
the smoked salmon in the glass, which is how the wine looks
in the bottle. With strawberries and must flavours, this is
a lip smacking, light, smoky rosé.
