Ackerman is the largest wine producer in the Loire Valley, and this Muscadet would be great with all kinds of seafood, especially oysters. This is a dry citrusy number, with lots of lemons, limes and pretty honeysuckle florals jumping out of the glass. Meanwhile, the palate is lighter-bodied, crisp and zesty, with a chalky mineral mouthfeel, a touch of creaminess, and a long, frisky finish. It's lip-licking stuff, and decent value if you are looking for something a little different.
