Bubbly blanc

Hoddles Creek Estate Blanc de Blancs 2015, Yarra Valley, AUD $36-$40

This is a bubbly with a difference, made from pinot blanc. With a light straw-green colour, it has charming fresh aromas of spices, herbs and floral talcum powder. Crisp and light in the mouth, with clean lines, a lemony touch and a refreshing finale. The gentle after-grip helps cleanse the finish. (Diam)
