Review: NV Szigeti Gruner Veltliner Brut

Share

Sparkling gruner from an Austrian winery called Szigeti — officially Sektkellerei Szigeti? What could be more fun to drink!?

This fruit-forward, nonvintage bottling offers lots of juiciness, but keeps things quite dry on the finish. There’s ample green apple, some light peach notes, and a bit of baking spice to mix things up, all filtered through a moderate to heavy level of fizz, approaching that of Champagne, but without so much yeastiness. (The wine does use traditional Champagne yeasts, however.) The tart finish makes the wine feel appropriately festive, and after a few glasses it makes saying “Szigeti” (ZIG-it-ee) all the more fun.
