Wine Review: This pale yellow colored German sparkler made from 100% Riesling opens with a mild green apple and mild bread dough bouquet. On the palate, this wine is quite dry, balanced, and easy going. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple with notes Anjou pear and a hint of apricot. The finish is dry and refreshing. It would serve this pleasant sparkler with steamed mussels. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Fitz-Ritter was one of the earliest producers of German Sekt (Sparkling Wine). This quality Sekt, produced from 100% old-vine Riesling, was grown in in the sunny microclimate of the Middle-Haardt region. It is crisp and dry while bursting with the fruitiness of ripe Riesling. Serve this exciting, dry Riesling Sekt with appetizers, sushi, seafood and greens.
