Wine Review: This pale straw colored Sekt Brut Riesling from Robert Weil was well liked by the Tasting Panel. It is pale straw colored and displays tiny streaming bubbles. It opens with a bread dough bouquet with hints of faint lemon and violet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and balanced. The flavor profile is a pleasant chalky minerality with notes of almond, green apple, lime and a hint of grapefruit. The finish is dry and rather refreshing. The Panel suggested pairing it with a scallop or a pork dish. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Sekt (sparkling wine) has a long tradition in Germany, a country that currently drinks more sparkling wine than any other. The fruit for the Robert Weil Riesling Sekt Brut is sourced from parcels neighboring the great Kiedrich Grafenberg Grosse Lage vineyard. It is produced using the traditional methode champenoise.
