Jacob’s Creek Blanc de Blancs Brut Cuvee

This is my fizz of choice when I’m entertaining hundreds on a shoestring. It’s elegant (there’s a word you don’t often hear at this price) with white peach, lemon and honey flavours, a refreshing palate and creamy bead. Full dosage lends a honeyed sweetness to the finish, which benefits from a solid chill to tone it down. It’s clean, balanced and great value. $9 at Jim’s Cellars.
