2018 Gebruder Simon Sekt Riesling Brut, Mosel, Germany (750ml)
About the Icons
This unique sparkling wine is crafted from premium Riesling grapes that are hand-picked and hand sorted. Fermentation took place in the bottle, in the méthode champenoise, and the dosage was made with Eiswein. Pale gold in the glass, this vibrant sparkler offers fine aromatics of ripe apricot, apple blossom and citrus fruit. This expressive Riesling is lively on the palate with persistent bubbles and intense flavors of apricot, mango and papaya with a touch of white pepper. Exotic, decadent and refreshing sparkling wine that makes the perfect aperitif.
Led by Kiki Pﬁtzer-Simon & Ingo Simon, Gebrüder Simon's winegrowing tradition dates back to 1724, and continues to this day, guided by passion, tradition and innovation. The current sparkling wine facility was built in 1995, and all of the sparkling wines are all made according to the traditional or classic method. Winemaker, Ingo Simon is frequently found in other wine regions, producing sparkling wine, and ﬂying as far as Georgia in the Caucasus to manage the production of red wines. He is a real character—known for his wry wit, and his astute seriousness when it comes to his craft. He is the driving force behind this small family venture located in Lösnich, facing the steep, amphitheatre-like slopes of the famous Ürziger Würzgarten.
