2018 GONE ROGUE MASH UP RED

The harmony of the blend is better than the sum of its parts! This is a vibrant, juicy red that oozes bright red fruit, with layers of complexity and clean light tannins. A mid-weight approachable style that has enough interest to keep you coming back.

WINE REVIEW BY SAM KIM WWW.WINEORBIT.CO.NZ 
93 POINTS / 5 Stars *****
The wine is wonderfully fruited and inviting on the nose showing blackberry, dark plum, toasted nut, and violet notes with a hint of pepper spice. It is flavoursome and beautifully weighted on the palate with succulent fruit intensity and fleshy texture, splendidly framed by silky tannins. A blend of shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, grenache, and mourvedre. At its best: now to 2026. Tasted Nov 2019.

WINE REVIEW BY MIKE BENNIE THE WINE FRONT
90 POINTS
Sloshy, jolly wash of dark berry, sweet and dried, pretty spice, herbal notes, rosehip tea and general-purpose damn interesting characters. Vibrant feel in palate, sweet and jolly, just enough tart acidity to whip things clean, light tannins. Sits in its own corner. I like this ride. Tasted June 2020.

WINE REVIEW BY ANGUS HUGHSON WWW.WINEPILOT.COM
91 POINTS - DRINK 2020-2023
The Rogue Vintner wines are not your serious, put down in the cellar wine styles. They are fun wines, with juicy, fruity appeal to enjoy over a casual meal or without, depending on your mood. That said it has taken plenty of effort in the winery to give that drinkability. Half McLaren Vale and Langhorne Creek fruit, including from some 85-year-old bush vine Grenache, give plenty of depth.
The wine is fruit-filled both to smell and taste. There are layers of ripe red and black berry fruits – with touches of earth and spice. It is juicy too with a line of bright acidity driving that approachability. An easy drink on its own but would be a good match with barbecued chicken kebabs. Tasted July 2020

2019 GONE ROGUE MISH MASH WHITE

$150.00 / case

91 points Angus Hughson, WinePilot.com
A bright and fresh white blend bursting with floral, citrus fruit, and perfumed notes. The palate has texture and character from the Pinot Gris and Viognier whilst the old vine Riesling provides a juicy, refreshing line of acidity. Serious but immensely smashable at the same time!

WINE REVIEW BY ANGUS HUGHSON WWW.WINEPILOT.COM
91 POINTS - DRINK 2020-2021
It is always great to see something new in the world of wine and I am fairly sure you’ve never tasted a wine like this. It is a Western Australian blend that brings together fruit from Margaret River and the Great Southern to craft an exotic white.
Zesty old vine Riesling from down south is lifted by pinot gris and a touch of barrel-fermented Viognier. The wine has exotic pear and floral aromatics that almost explode from the glass leading to a dry and crisp style with a touch of grip. There is plenty of length too for that exotic fruit to make its mark. That exotic fruit and crisp style makes it very well suited to spicy Thai dishes. Tasted July 2020.

GONE ROGUE MULTI-VINTAGE PACK

$300.00 / case
Have some fun and compare the influence of season, bottle age and a couple of very minor blend tweaks. Boring alert: Going after flavour in these wines means accepting that Mother Nature is my co-pilot and each year the fruit can taste a little different. So the blend may change a little each year in search of that ultimate flavour and balance.

Why not geek out and get all nerdy at your next dinner party by bringing a bottle of each vintage.

This pack includes the following wines:

3 x bottles 2018 Mish Mash White, 91 points Sam Kim, Wine Orbit NZ
3 x bottles 2017 Mash Up Red, Gold Medal & Trophy, Korean Wine Awards
3 x bottles 2019 Mish Mash White, 91 points Angus Hughson, WinePilot.com

Rogue by name and Rogue by nature. We've never been ones to do things the conventional way - we like to go big or go home. So we've created the 'But wait, there's more pack'. 15 bottles are better than 12. Truth is, we struck a little trademark issue in a certain country, not to be named (we got 'trumped', you could say) - so our litigious headache is your gain!

ROGUE VINTNER

WINE HAS BECOME
MORE THAN A DRINK
IT’S A CULTURAL
PHENOMENON

Wine has become more than a drink; it’s a cultural phenomenon with its own language, its own rules and traditions evolved over centuries. But while traditions are to be respected, sometimes you have to give them a shake to take a step forward and push the boundaries. 
 
Enter the Rogue Vintner. The Rogue Vintner plays by his own rules. A non-conformist by nature, he brings a sense of the playful and mischievous to the art of making wine. Unrestricted by traditional norms, wines are described in plain language rather than industry buzzwords. There are no board meetings, no ties to regions, no restrictions, no limits; the only rules are flavour, balance and intrigue. 
 
There’s a bit of rogue in all of us. Come and find yours today

THE ROGUE

THE GROUND
BREAKING MOMENT
CAME IN 1991 THAT
CHANGED THE
COURSE OF HIS LIFE.

It wasn't the moment he first imbibed wine (although that did help); it was the day he happened across the concept of Wine Marketing' while planning his future career.

He set about his new passion with aplomb, turbocharging his thinking by killing off his weaker brain cells by in-depth research of his chosen specialist subject.

The end result; a qualification in Wine Marketing, a love of the fermented grape, a network of lifelong friends and contacts and a vision of approaching the wine industry his way.

He travelled the world with a thirst for both wine and knowledge,digging out red ferments in the Barossa Valley, dragging winery hoses in the remote Great Southern region of Western Australia and punching down red ferments in California's Sonoma Valley.

In New York, he slung his wine bag on the streets, while in London he poured samples for sommeliers in some of this city's hippest venues.

All the while he never lost sight of the fact that it's what's in the glass that counts above all else. That wine remains a pleasure, not a corporate concept.

The Rogue Vintner believes that everyone's wine journey is individual, and believes that individuality can be applied to production as much as consumption.
