They say, people that knows these things and feel inclined to pass on this vital information, that Picqpoul, a variety from the south of France, is the best wine to drink with oysters. 

These might sound like fighting words for Chablis and Champagne producers who can add they are grown on oyster shells, but that said this variety does have this intriguing saline character and is bone-dry. Try as we might on our test bed, Picqpoul does work a treat with Sydney rock oysters with a simple vinaigrette of shallots, pepper and champagne vinegar.
