Amazing deal on one of our favorite sparkling wines!
Every once in a while a deal rolls around on a wine we love. We are constantly on the watch for this kind of thing, and we've found a doozy! A number of our customers have already fallen in love with this German sparkler as it's already a very high quality wine for a very good price. Now it's time for everyone else to fall in love with it!
Thomas Hansen is a fourth-generation winemaker in the Mosel valley. He only produces wine from two hectares of vineyards, but those two hectares are located in Bernkastel-Kues, arguably the finest vineyard site in Germany, and one of the best in Europe.
We met Thomas in the Spring and tasted through his beautiful range of Riesling-based wines. At first highly "correct" and a bit intimidating, he immediately warmed up once we had his wines in our glasses. We found these qualities mirrored in the wines themselves. A perfect example of Mosel structure quickly yields to lush, easy, almost indulgent fruit. A pleasing bready yeastiness clears the palate for another swig. Great before, during, and after meals.
This is a do-not-miss sale. Of a total production of 110 cases of the 2014, there are only 8 cases left and we have them. Come get a few!
Available to taste until it's gone.
"This traditional-method Riesling sekt, made from a collection of Bernkastel vineyard sites, has been a consistent crowd pleaser from vintage to vintage. It's a cutting, spry wine with delicate, persistent bubbles and concentrated green apple, lemon and lime flavors. Brut in style, with revitalizing acidity and complexities of caramelized sugar and nuts, it makes an ideal apéritif."
