Henkell and Co N/V Riesling Dry Sekt - 86pts
Availability: Widely available at BCLDB stores
Date Tasted: March 16th, 2015
Tasting Notes: Differentiates itself from the company's flagship sparkler by being made from 100% Riesling grapes instead of the unnamed, "white blend" that forms the basis of the more popular Trocken label. The result is a slightly more focused off-dry wine with recognizable aged Riesling characters; honeyed apricots, flint and lemon/lime. Finish is a bit short, but, this sparkler goes down easy. Drink now.
