As if mosel riesling knocked up a Sancerre while vacationing in champagne: white grapefruit, white pepper and yesterday's cut grass. So fresh, so clean

Nose has chilled, fresh cut yellow & green apples, wet spring hay and twist of lemon peel.

Palate has sugary limestone, tart green apple and light grassy herbal notes.

Last bottle.

If you're not drinking Elbling sekt, I ask why? You need to experience it at least once, and likely that won't be enough. A much more balanced grape for sekt, the Riesling versions can get a little screechy with higher acidity, Elbling is quite even keeled.

So much fun for such a great value. The texture, the acid, reminds me of the Loire.

Friday night Tanglewood wine with the BSO playing some Bernstein & Tchaikovsky, Jean-Yves Thibaudet on piano!

Sekt...Yes please, may I have another? Elbling sekt none the less, Hild has a good grasp on this grape. It's way too easy to drink.
