Szigeti, Grüner Veltliner Sekt Brut, Burgenland, Austria
Tasting Note: A fun, sparkling grüner veltliner with fine bubbles from Austria that will make you want to expand your repertoire of sparkling wines you normally enjoy as a still wine.
Pale-intensity lemon in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus intensity nose of fresh green apple, caramel, blossom and melon.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied wine delivers bright, green-fruit flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity.
The wine has a creamy texture and completes with a medium-plus, tart, lemon-citrus-infused finish that shows some persistence.
