Sparkling wine has a long, rich tradition in Germany, where it has been called “Sekt” since the late 1800s. Germans are the biggest consumers of sparkling wine in the world, and most of the Sekt they produce is sold at home.
Dr. L Sparkling Riesling is 100% pure Riesling — the crisp, fruity grape that has made German wine famous for centuries. It is made using the Charmat method, where the second fermentation is done in a pressurized tank to keep the bubbles in the wine. This method produces bright, clean sparkling wines in a more affordable way, which makes it possible to offer this charming bubbler at a very nice everyday price.
FROM THE PRESS
“Exuberant green floral perfume, melon and peach abound on this profoundly aromatic
sparkler. It’s delicate in mousse with soft, persistent bubbles and deeply penetrating flavors
of stone fruit and tangerine. Vibrant and spine-tingling, it’s a remarkably elegant sekt with a
gentle price tag.” — 91 pts, Wine Enthusiast, April 2016.
