NV Hild Elbling Sekt Brut Sparkling Mosel Germany

$19.99

In the Upper Mosel, a often overlooked region that has focused more on Elbling over Germany’s famous Riesling. In the grand scheme of German grape growing Elbling is a minor remnant, but one with a long history, perhaps dating all the way back to the era of the Roman Empire. Hild is one of the holdout producers of this variety. Sekt is the German term for sparkling wine, and this indeed a fully bubbling, bone-dry wine with super crisp acidity and lovely citrus and green apple notes.

Description

The Elbling grape has been grown in Europe for centuries; at one time widely-planted in the Upper Mosel, in more recent decades it has been devalued due to a lack of quality seen in its usage for bulk wines from co-ops. The Hild family has chosen to grow Elbling with care and focus, and are working towards organic certification. Soils in the Upper Mosel are more limestone than slate, due to the swath of the Paris Basin that extends into the region. The chalkiness comes through in this Méthode Champenoise sparkling
