Rugged Coast Central Otago 2016 Pinot Rosé and 2011 Pinot Noir


Rugged Coast Estate is a brand created by the Brandhouse distribution company. Brandhouse is best known for its Champagne and spirits portfolio, but includes a number of New Zealand labels. The first releases of the Rugged Coast wines are made from fruit from the ‘McArthur Ridge’ vineyard on Springvale Road and McArthur Road, Alexandra that was first planted in 2002. Brandhouse intends to add other varietals to the range, made from fruit from other districts. Here, I review the Rugged Coast 2016 Pinot Rosé, made by Dean Shaw at the Central Otago Wine Co., and 2011 Pinot Noir made by Jed Penkman when he was at South Island Vintners, Cromwell.
