Tasting Notes: This bottle-fermented Sekt displays a pale golden color with a glint of green. Yellow fruit aromas are dry with a soft, juicy structure and a pleasing streak of minerality. Notes of crisp apple and pear.
The Domain: This is a young family-run winery located in the north-east of Austria, in Ketzelsdorf-Poysdorf. The owners Sylvia and Martin Hugl aim to produce fruity, full-bodied wines that are typical of the region and the soils. They use their parents' experience and combine it with their know-how and modern techniques to create high-quality wines. To keep quality high they limit quantity by cutting back, thinning, and green harvesting. A careful handling of the grapes during harvesting is as necessary, along with a cool fermentation in the cellar.
