Just what is Sekt? Well, are familiar with Champagne? Sekt is the German name for sparking made in Germany in the traditional Champagne method. What makes this particular bottle special is the grape variety!
For over 200 years Dr. Loosen has been making Riesling from the slopes of the Mosel. In almost any wine shop you’ll visit, you will come across a Dr. Loosen Riseling. When a small parcel of Pinot Noir vines in Ürziger Würzgarten (“Spice Garden of Ürzig”) became available it was decided that something amazing can be done. Ürziger Würzgarten is a famous site in Mosel known for red sandstone soil, wines from this site are spicy and richer than those in the neighboring site. The soil and grape variety was a perfect combination to try something different, and of course, Rosé Sekt was produced.
