Immich Anker, Enkircher Zeppwingert Brut Nature Zero Dosage Riesling Sekt 2014, Mosel, Germany
Tasting Note: An aged sparkling riesling that is bright, uplifting and filled with lively, green fruit.
Pale-intensity lemon in color with small, tight bubbles, this wine has a medium-intensity nose of green apple, pear, lemon citrus and chalk with hints of brioche.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied sparkling riesling has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by high acidity and completing with a citrusy, medium finish.
There is midpalate complexity and a steely texture that make this sparkling wine perfect to serve as an aperitif.
Would work great with sushi or chicken schnitzel.
