In December 2020, Anne Krebiehl, MW, published this piece on German Sekt and raised a point about the opportunity for a Sekt from Schwarzriesling grapes from Württemberg…“All we need now is for Württemberg to wake up to the potential of its many hectares of Schwarzriesling (aka Pinot Meunier).”
A Wunderwein producer, Coop Weingärtner Stromberg-Zabergäu jumped on the opportunity and created this delicious Pinot Meunier Rosé Sekt and we are delighted to bring it to our German Wine Fans and Champagne lovers in North America.
The wine is made in traditional bottle fermentation (Flaschengärung) with 17 months on the lees. The wine has a dense aroma of ripe apples with subtle toasty notes of fresh bread and a hint of dried raspberries. Crisp and fresh on the palate with flavors of peach and nectarine, with a creamy, elegant texture and a great lengthy finish.
This is a very special wine that was made with a lot of time and passion to create this first-class sparkling tingling pleasure experience that Champagne lovers like so much.
Pinot Meunier is a little diva in the vineyard, it demands a lot of skill and experience from the winemaker to obtain perfect grapes, which are then pressed whole.
