Blue Wren, nestled amongst the vines and situated in one of New South Wales’ premium wine regions – Mudgee - has just released their first ever rosé label, Blue Wren No. 516 Rosé. Joining the Rosé Revolution this is the first time that Blue Wren has produced rosé, using Merlot grapes from The Lost Block. The Lost Block is located in the Mudgee region, situated on a small four-acre block that produces low yielding yet high quality fruit and having never been utilised for a decade - hence the title of The Lost Block.

The result of this is the Blue Wren No. 516 Rosé exhibiting a delicate wine that is clean and crisp with a subtle pink colour and fresh lifted with red berry fruit of the raspberry and a slight hint of strawberry.
At 13.5% alcohol, Blue Wren's rosé is a tran-seasonal drink, that is crisp, dry and savoury on the palate with a sharp dry quick finish making it the perfect dinner aperitif or equally a pleasant light dessert wine.

"We are very happy with the result. Mudgee's grape growing conditions are well suited to traditional rosé varieties, that give rosé produced in Mudgee a distinct ripe and savoury taste that goes with a range of dishes," Says Blue Wren owner Kip Harris.

Today, Rosé wine is among the fastest growing wine styles in Australia because of its refreshing drinkability, and suits the warm climate and it goes with a wide selection of foods.

"We have seen the popularity for rosé grow in and around the region and the exceptional quality of grapes produced here in Mudgee. We are now a part of the Rosé Revolution and have created a vibrant and tran-seasonal wine," say Harris.

Known for its concentrated and flavoursome wine styles, Mudgee has had continuous history of winemaking with the first grapes grown in 1858 and reached a peak of 55 vineyards in 1893, now Mudgee is the third largest grape-producing region in NSW and has more than 110 wine grape growers and more than 30 cellar doors.

Located three-and-a-half hours' drive from Sydney, Mudgee's burgeoning wine region is situated on the western slopes of the Great Dividing Range, and has a very different climate to that of its neighbour on the coastal side, the Hunter Valley. Cold nights delay bud-burst and rainfall and humidity are lower, with greater sunshine hours. Nevertheless, Mudgee's altitude of around 450 meters shelters it from the heat.

The boutique winery boasts the only Chef's table dining experience in the Central West NSW wine region, located at the winery's recently refurbished intimate restaurant. Guests can dine as Head Chef and owner Kip Harris showcases first-hand, an innovative menu using only the finest produce matched with Blue Wren's latest wine releases, ranging from the new rosé to their recent release of the Verscato and even a White Port to end the night.
