LOZÄRN, situated on the outskirts of Bonnievale, produces award-winning wines from a terroir typical of the world-famous Bordeaux region of France. Its renown has come from one variety in particular – Carménère, which thrives in red soils, shale and a climate suited for long, slow ripening.

 

The winery’s Carménère Rosé ’22 (R135) is the ideal summer sipper, and pairs beautifully with this easy-to-make prawn, coconut and tomato curry dish.
