Kochan & Platz's Riesling Sekt Brut is a fine, fresh and fruity sparkling wine with aromas of citrus, peach and apricot. It has a low residual sweetness, fine perlage and pleasant acidity.
Vineyard: The Kochan & Platz winery is located in Lieser and their vineyards have special terrior unique to the Mosel region. The winery's deep respect for tradition and work that is in harmony with nature guarantees excellent qualities.
Vinification: The essence of this sparkling wine in the mousseux - the fine bubbles of carbonic acid that create a second fermentation. The fermentation takes place in the wine's original bottles in a cool cellar. The storage time on the yeast is determined by Sekt classification rules and requires at least nine months for bottle fermentation. In this case however, the wine was fermented for 16 months.
