Excellent as an aperitif and paired with seafood.
Bright slightly petrol aroma with tones of minerals, pleasantries and fruits. Bright and fresh acidity tingles the tongue pleasantly and creates the energy of the taste. Definitely, this Sekt will remain in your memory for a long time.
History of wine
Since the early 1980s, the winery has been producing its own sparkling wines, always using the traditional method. The grapes are used from the best vineyards, mainly from Mullay-Hofberg. All sparkling flavors are aged on lees (minimum 18 months) to achieve maximum freshness. Currently, almost 10% of the total harvest is used to create Sekts. Terroir, the spontaneous fermentation of the base wines and the traditional aging in large wooden barrels are integral parts of the process.
The Melsheimer family—that’s five generations of growing almost exclusively fine Riesling wines on the steep slopes surrounding the beautiful village of Reil on the river Mosel. To care for and develop our vineyards with an ecologically sound approach has been a top priority as winemakers for a long time.
The Mosel is marked by many steep slopes. Among them, only 5% are very steep slopes and thus particularly valuable cultural assets. Approximately half of our sites are on these very steep slopes: We grow almost exclusively Riesling here, since the Mosel has been famous for wines made from this grape variety for centuries—and many wine lovers think that Riesling vines produce their best results in the Mosel region.
