Wine of the Week AU

De Bortoli La Bohème Cuvée Blanc NV, Yarra Valley, AUD $20

This bubbly is a new addition to the La Bohème range, a palish coloured, white-grape style which is very much a blanc de blancs. It has lemon citrus and straw-hay scents and is fresh and youthful. Not especially complex, but clean, crisp and appetising. (Diam)
