Hāhā Rõhi Hawke’s Bay Sparkling Rosé NV ($40 for 2)
Brand new and absolutely, hands-down, no-holds-barred, the best thing to sip whilst nibbling these acidulously awesome little pockets of piquant perfection, is this wine. Crafted by Ant Mackenzie from a mix of merlot, malbec and cabernet sauvignon and bottled with a new screwcap designed specifically for sparkling wine, you can now twist the cap back on after you’ve poured a glass and the fizz is kept crackly fresh. No more fiddly corks, cages, zorks or champagne stoppers. Bold, bursting with berry bagel and rich, biscuity notes, it’s refreshingly vibrant yet cool in its own skin. Yum!
