You don't need us to tell you that rosé is on a roll, especially when it's light, dry and super refreshing, which is where Koparepare Rosé comes in. It's made in Marlborough at Whitehaven Wines, which was founded by Greg and Sue White in 1994 after they sailed into the Marlborough Sounds to shelter from a storm in the early 1990s and fell for the natural beauty of the region and the haven it provided. So they decided to take the next natural step - set up a winery back on dry land, naming it, naturally enough, Whitehaven.
This range of wines, Kōparepare, pays respect to the sea by contributing a portion of the profit from every bottle of wine to supporting LegaSea, which is a not for profit organisation set up by the New Zealand Sport Fishing Council in 2012. LegaSea's aim is to raise awareness of the marine environment and inspire public support.
