Wine Review: From one of the biggest names in wine comes a sparkling wine from one of the oldest wine countries in the world. Germany is known for its Riesling, so it is of no shock that a bottle of sparkling wine has been made from it. The wine boasts both developed flavors of honey and yellow delicious apples, along with slightly less developed flavors of lemon zest and ginger. The light straw color of this wine hints at a softer profile but the wine does deliver a bit more. Paired with seared scallops this wine would shine. – Nicolay

Winemaker Notes: Sparkling wine has a long, rich tradition in Germany, where it has been called "Sekt" since the late 1800s. Germans are the biggest consumers of sparkling wine in the world and most of the Sekt they produce is sold at home. However, we thought it was time for American wine drinkers to discover real German Sekt. Dr. L Sparkling Riesling is made from 100% Riesling. It is an affordable crisp, fruity and clean sparkling wine.
