Riesling is an excellent base wine for Sekt due to its naturally high acidity and its ability to show its varietal characteristics and origin even when produced as a sparkling wine. The cool valley of the Spitzer Graben gives this wine heightened aromas of mandarin orange, guava, and white peach with a dry and lingering finish.
Riesling Brut Spitzer Graben will accent simply prepared fish and shellfish in the same way a squeeze of lemon might. The salty minerality of this wine highlights the brininess of raw oysters while its acidity will accent a crudo of halibut with olive oil and sea salt.
An almost exotic tinge of guava and lime plays on the nose. The palate majors on expressive, aromatic notes of lemon and green orange peel, supported by a fine, frothy mousse and dollop of stone-fruit richness. Made from Riesling grown in the coolest part of the Wachau, this wine is unusual but utterly moreish with a fruity but dry finish.
