A real “wow!” cider this one and a welcome return to the top echelon for Hawke’s Bay-based Zeffer. If you like rosé this is the cider for you. Sparkles like a glass of pink diamonds. Vibrant notes of raspberry, cherry and violets deliver a rich perfume of aromas. The flavour profile is a coherent blend of sweet berries and just-tannic cider notes. The judges loved this intricate and individual cider which comes in a large format squealer – perfect for sharing. “Scrumptious, juicy and fresh. “Delicious”, said the judges.
This has all the qualities of a rosé wine and will match the same way. From light salads and pasta, quiche, grilled fish to soft cheeses, it will work with a vanilla crème brûlée too.
