Wine Review: A golden colored sparkling. I think had I not known this was a Riesling I would be dumbfounded by this sparkler. The nose is classic Riesling with hints of lilac, rose petals, apricots, and petrol. This drinks like a trocken spatlese, with bubbles, which is what most Champagne producer wished they could achieve regularly. The palate is as inviting and interactive as the nose displaying notes of peaches, sun dried apricots, and almonds. The minerality is very prominent in this wine, always tangible from the beginning to the end. The finish could be a bit longer, but outside of that this is a keeper. Pair with honey-glazed ham. - Nicolay

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
