Villa Maria Earth Garden Hawke’s Bay Rosé 2020 $19.99

This certified organic, 100% merlot rosé is part of a new, environmentally conscious range of wines designed to meet the global demands for more fully-sustainable wine. It’s also designed to be darn tasty and they’ve succeeded in that. If you’re seeking out a sweet lolly-like rosé then you’ve come down the wrong cul-de-sac cobber, this wine is perky, dry and dripping with spiced watermelon, red apple and flinty minerality in the mouth. Solid length of flavour too.
