Riesling
extra brut
sur lie 18

The fruits for this sparkling wine have been handpicked from vineyards in Martinsdorf in the month of September. Grapes are whole-bunch pressed and only the juice from primary pressing is used. The traditional method of bottle fermentation is being followed.

Brilliant yellow with golden hues in colour and fine sparkles, this wine opens with a fruity nose of apples and a subtle zest, quite playful in its multi-layered aromas. The mineral palate displays a creamy consistency which persists through an elegant long lingering finish.

What is “sur lie”?

“Sur lie” (french for “on the lees”) denotes the number of months the sparkling wine has aged before the lees were disgorged.

Sur lie 18 At least 18 months
Sur lie 30 At least 30 months
Sur lie 50 At least 50 months

You can easily determine the aging sur lie by the color of the lozenges on the front label. Additionally the exact number of months is declared on the back label.

Sur lie 18 = dark grey lozenges, sur lie 30 = teal lozenges, sur lie 50 = golden lozenges
