Maximin Grünhaus Riesling Sekt Brut
A fine and elegant sparkling Riesling from the Ruwer Valley, made according to the traditional “méthode champenoise.”
For the Riesling Sekt, 100% healthy grapes were harvested in the Herrenberg vineyard. Whole clusters were pressed with low pressure for about three hours. The wine was fermented in old Fuder casks, and left on the full lees until April. After racking and filtering the wine was taken to a local Sekt producer who handled the second fermentation in the bottle, 27 months of maturation in bottle, hand riddling and disgorgement. The dosage was done with subtle Abtsberg Spätlese. The wine has a very fine mousseux, the typically racy minerality of Grünhaus Riesling, and a silky texture combined with an invigorating freshness.
