93 Points – Kasia Sobiesiak, The Wine Front

Picpoul (or piquepoul – pronounced “pick-pool”) is a white grape variety native to the Mediterranean shores of the Languedoc in Southern France, and is widely argued to be the perfect match to oysters. The vibrant natural acidity cuts through the richness of oysters, and unlike more savoury or austere wines like Champagne, which can overwhelm the palate and emphasise the metallic notes of oysters, picpoul's delicate fruitiness enhances the shellfish's sweetness and cleanses the back palate. 

This version, from Canowindra in NSW's Central Ranges, provides an elegant core of tree orchard fruits, with a squeeze of lime and a dart of fresh, quivering acidity. A gentle mouthfeel and subtle lees complexity makes for a perfect match to fresh seafood.
