Zephyr MKI Organic Marlborough Rosé 2021 $28

Throwing an ultra-pretty pink diamond and morganite hue in the glass this pinot noir-based rosé has pace, acceleration, energy and buckets of bright raspberry, cherry and crushed shell minerality aplenty. Crunchy acidity, mouthwatering textures, it’s snappy-dry, and has a Provençal-like mouthfeel. It’s so good that I’m thinking holy heck, if this is the level of the Mk1, what on earth are we going to cope with the excellence of future vintages??
