"Lifted hints of dried lemon and orange peel tinged with honey signal some post-disgorgement evolution. More air adds hints of juicy clementine. The palate is frothy and alive with citrus: think tangy tangerine and riper clementine. The finish is just as fruity but finishes on a beautiful, dry but very juicy note. Great as an aperitif, great with canapés, just made for a party!"

Riesling brut - a classic! Refreshing and sparkling, with a delicate creamy note and elegant body. Noble yet playful, it speaks to all of our senses.
Vineyard: Rheingau and Riesling - they definitely belong together. There is no other wine growing area in Germany that is dominated as much by one grape variety: They grow almost 80% Riesling - and rightly so! Their cool climate fits perfectly to the characteristics fo the grape variety and makes it an all-rounder: From first course wines to the top and noble sweet wine to the sparkling wine - the Riesling can do it all!
Wine: To achieve texture and ripeness, 50% of the base wine was matured in large wooden barrels and underwent biological acid decomposition. This was followed by a second fermentation and yeast contact for at least 12 months during which they carried out a batonage (stirring of the yeast) twice a week for 10 months. This gives the sparkling wine a fine perlage.
Food recommendation: As an aperitif of with first courses of fish or salad.
