Pelorus NV

New Zealand, sparkling wine, $32

The story: The famed Marlborough producer's sparkling and if you're in the mood to back a Kiwi horse in the Cup next week, you should be loading up on this. It's one of the best consistently from over the ditch and has genuine French-like class.

The flavour: Yeasty to begin with classic aged "autolysis" edges, it remains an aperitif style with apple crunchy flavours and squeezes of lime juice. Tight with secondary bready elements. Crisp, fine and should race down on a hot spring day.

Rating: ****
4 out of 5 stars - a cut above
Value: Good
Verdict: Kiwi magic
