2015 Maximin Grunhauser Riesling Sekt Brut
For the Grünhaus Sekt, 100% healthy grapes were harvested in the Herrenberg vineyard at the end of October, 2015. Whole clusters were pressed with low pressure for about three hours. The wine was fermented in old Fuder casks until Christmas, and left on the full lees until April 2016.
After racking and filtering the wine was taken to a local Sekt producer who handled the second fermentation in the bottle, maturation in bottle, hand riddling and disgorgement — the classic “méthode champenoise.” The dosage was done with an excellent 2011 Herrenberg Auslese, taking the wine to the upper limits of brut. The wine has a very fine mousseux, the typically racy minerality of Grünhaus Riesling, and a silky texture combined with a very attractive creaminess. Very limited production.
