Hugl Sparkling Gruner Veltliner
Austria - Weinviertel

Poysdorf lies on the same line of latitude as Champagne, and the climate is similar. Hugl was anxious to take advantage of their resources and produce this Veltliner-Sekt!

This bottle fermented sekt displays a pale golden color with a glint of green. Yellow fruit aromas, dry with a soft, juicy structure and a pleasing streak of minerality. Notes of crisp apple and pear.

Wine Type
100% Gruner Veltliner
Ripe grapes are gently pressed & fermented refrigerated. Vinified in stainless steel (no oak). Bottle fermented.

Delightful as an aperitif, or pair with Thai cuisine or sushi.

wine enthusiast 89 pts"The faintest hint of honey plays on the nose before heartier, spicier notes of pear kick in. The palate has that same honeyed edge on a really frothy palate with lively bubbles. A lovely fruitiness pervades the midpalate before coming to a lovely and zingy dry and refreshing finish. - Anne KREBIEHL MW"
