Sparkling wines and those under 11% alcohol were the only winners in August's duty changes, so there's double the reason to buy this. It's sweet and simple, yes, but the light body and frothy mousse stops the fresh grape, jasmine and peach notes from being cloying. A crowd-pleasing aperitif or with a fruity dessert.
