Leitz Dragonstone Riesling Sekt 2014

Leitz Dragonstone Riesling Sekt 750ML 2014     
Sku: 000000040218

Sparkling Riesling is a unique proposition. The principal varieties associated with sparkling wine production, both in Champagne and elsewhere, tend to lose their acidity as they ripen, meaning they must be picked very early in the season, before their flavors are fully developed, or they can otherwise yield a flabby, unenticing product. Riesling can be harvested at a higher level of maturity, leading to lush, exotic fruit flavors not like anything you can find in Champagne.

Rather than a conventional méthode traditionelle, Rheingau wunderkind Josi Leitz opts for a twist on a style called pétillant-naturel or pet-nat. This is a kind of freewheeling variation on the conventional technique in which partially-fermented wine is chilled down and bottled, allowing the fermentation to complete in bottle. Popularized in the Loire Valley, this technique yields a fruitier wine with softer bubbles.
