Sparkling wine, called “Sekt” in German, has a long history in Germany – a fact that you can see in the many German family names among famous Champagne houses (think Bollinger, Krug and Mumm, for example). We produce a very limited amount of Sekt, one made from Riesling and the other from Pinot Noir, and are delighted to share these wines with you today.
We celebrate this tradition with an Extra Dry Sekt from 100% Riesling, which makes excellent sparkling wine because of its natural acidity. The Dr. Loosen Sekt Extra Dry is produced with fruit from estate vineyards in the Middle Mosel. Bottle fermented, it is brisk and refreshing, with pure Riesling fruit and crisp acidity. We’ve been making this wine since the early 90s.
90 points, Wine Enthusiast: "Zesty green apple and crisp stone fruits are electrified by spine tingling acidity in this invigorating sekt. It's fresh and primary in style, with just a hint of cookie crumbs that linger on the midpalate. Tiny, vigorous bubbles dissipate elegantly on the finish."
