Best Sparkling

Bloodwood Chirac, Orange 2007 $40

This is a generous sparkling wine showing richness and character from time on lees. With a full yellow colour, its bouquet is toasty, slightly smoky and mellow while the palate is soft, dry and mature, with low dosage and a clean, dry, lingering finish, firmed up by a whisper of tannin. An appealing, developed wine, crown sealed. Drink now. 11.5 per cent alcohol. 90/100 (Huon’s Wine 360)

Food: mixed nuts

Stockist: Five Way Cellars
