MY TASTING NOTES

Piper is one of my favourite Champagnes with bright, fresh aromas of lemon zest and orchard fruits. Pale lemon in colour with fine tiny bubbles with hints of hazelnut and rye bread, it’s dry with a medium body and full of flavour.

Huon Hooke – Prolific Australian Wine Reviewer For Fairfax Media And Huonhooke.com

Medium to light straw-yellow colour. Nutty and toasty bread bouquet with appealing yeasty development and a touch of complexity. The palate is dry and savoury, not sweet fruity, with a lip-smacking dryness and sapidity that appeals. The acidity is pleasantly mouth-watering, yet it’s quite ample in the mouth. Good clean finish that leaves you wanting more.
