Riesling Brut - a classic! Refreshing and sparkling, with a delicate creamy note and elegant body. Noble yet playful, it speaks to all of our senses.

Vineyard: Rheingau and Riesling - they definitely belong together. There is no other wine growing area in Germany that is dominated as much by one grape variety. The cool climate fits perfectly to the characteristics of the grape variety and makes it an all-rounder: From first course wines to the top noble sweet wine to the sparkling wine - The Riesling can do it all.

Wine: To achieve supple texture and ripeness, 50% of the base wine was matured in large wooden barrels and underwent biological acid decomposition. This was followed by a second fermentation and yeast contact for at least 12 months during which carried out a baton age (stirring of the yeast) twice a week for 10 months. This gives the sparkling wine a fine perlage.

Food recommendation: As an aperitif or with first courses of fish or salad.
