Zaria Hawke’s Bay Malbec Rosé 2020 $21

Whenever Bryce Edmonds at Zaria releases a new vintage rosé I’m all over it like an Augustine kimono (particularly if said kimono was in this outrageously pretty ruby hue). Made from Malbec grown in the deep, red gravels of the Bridge Pa Triangle, this new release screams style and sippability. Fresh pepper and cherry layers are perfectly interlaced and juicily joined by soft raspberry and cratesful of cranberry characters on the finish. Enjoy with classic prawn and pork dumplings dipped in ponzu sauce.
