Best sparkling

Piper Heidsieck Brut NV, Champagne $50

With a straw-yellow hue, this has a nut and toasty-bread bouquet, subtle yeast development adding complexity. The palate is dry and savoury with a lip-smacking dryness. The acidity is pleasantly mouth-watering, yet it’s quite ample in the mouth. The finish is clean and leaves you wanting more. Drink now. 12 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: prawns and mayo

Stockist: Vintage Cellars & Liquorland
