Tasting Notes

Sekt is the German name for sparkling wine, a style that they are very passionate about and drink on a regular basis. Some estates have made it a specialty and are well respected for their bubbly. Such an estate is Fitz-Ritter in the Pfalz who we are happy to say produced this sparkling Riesling for us. The Sektkellerei Fitz (Sparkling-Wine-Cellar) is historically one of the most interesting in all of Germany. Produced of 100% Riesling this sparkling wine is fresh and vibrant with fine bubbles and a creamy mouth feel underscored by the beautiful stone fruits and snappy acidity we love in Riesling. At 11.5% alcohol this is a lighter style of bubbly that won't overwhelm the palate before a meal or become to taxing when many wines will be served.

    Germany surprises me sometimes. I grew up turning my nose up at "anything" Sekt, until I tasted this bottle on New Year's! Incredibly aromatic but dry as it can be. A bubbly to go with a Blanquette de Veau, Quiche Lorraine, Waldorf Salad, Sashimi and Sushi, Chinese food and all things raspberry.

    Riesling in bubble form...what could be be better? In my wine world, not too much! Along with being deliciously refreshing and light, this Sekt has the telltale apple and lemony notes that taste so perfect at the end of a long day. Sekt makes me so happy!

    When we first received the Sekt I was worried. It didn't seem to be the kind of sparkler that would appeal to the general public. However, what a difference some bottle time can make! The flavors are riper and more fruit forward (lemon/lime) than the were initially, and it's now a very light and lively sipper. A great pre-cursor to a meal or for something fun during desert. Completely dry and refreshing.
