Blue Pyrenees Vintage Brut 2012 $32
This Victoria sparkling had a tough act to follow, coming on the back of a splurge of Champagne over Christmas/New Year... you know the stuff, Pol Roger, Moet, Veuve and so on. So this was our return to normal, as it were. We agreed (yeah, I'm surprised too) that this is good, everyday fizz that won't let you down at an affordable price - $32. It's a blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. Creamy texture, crisp citrus finish with that steely crunch that good sparkling demands.
