Freixenet — Carta Nevada & Cordon Negro Brut

Two bottles from Freixenet have topped our list this year. First, Carta Nevada ($15.50) semi-seco has a brilliant balance of sweet and dry. The toasty aroma and fruity, flavourful palate deliver creamy, sweet peaches with smooth custard flavours. Just the right touch of acidity keeps it lively. Second, Cordon Negro Brut ($16.50) is a crisp, clean and well-balanced Cava sparkling wine. The fresh palate of apple, ripe pear and bright citrus flavours combine with a long finish and an exciting touch of ginger. This brilliant, versatile Cava goes well with just about everything.

Haywire’s ‘The Bub’ ($30) is a delicious bottle of bubbly, made from 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay.
