Kōparepare Pinot Noir Rosé Wins Gold For A Second Year In A Row

The 2021 Kōparepare Marlborough Pinot Noir Rosé has won gold at this year’s Marlborough Wine Show. This marks the second year in a row that the wine has been awarded a Gold Medal at the Competition, with only three Rosé wines awarded a Gold Medal in both 2020 and 2021.

Produced by Whitehaven Wines, the Pinot Noir Rosé is part of the Kōparepare wine range that supports the marine environment in New Zealand with every bottle sold. To date Whitehaven has donated over $62,000 to LegaSea, a non-profit organisation dedicated to restoring the abundance, biodiversity, and health of New Zealand’s marine environment.

Samantha White, ambassador for the Kōparepare brand and daughter of Whitehaven co-founders Sue and the late Greg White is thrilled with recent Gold Medal win “Two golds in a row really showcases the high calibre of this wine. The Kōparepare range not only supports our marine environment but is also a high-quality range of wines that are made to be enjoyed time and time again. Being able to donate over $62,000 to date is a brilliant joint effort from all our consumers enjoying these wines, while making a difference to our marine environment.”

Funds raised from the Kōparepare range of wines support LegaSea’s work through various campaigns including:
