Fragrant and fresh

Gratien & Meyer Crémant de Loire Brut NV, AUD $26

The fragrant, fruity bouquet is strawberry-like, revealing its red-grape content. The palate is crisp and lean, dry and refreshingly tangy. It’s delicate and finely-textured and would be excellent with fish. Indeed, it needs food. Made from chenin blanc, chardonnay and cabernet franc. They also make a very good rosé. (Cork)
