he Fitz-Ritter family estate dates back to 1785 and is today owned and managed by the 9th generation in succession, Johann Fitz. The wine estate is today certified organic and one of the founding members of the elite VDP ‘Verband Deutscher Prädikatsweingüter’ (Association of German Predicate Wine Estates). The sparkling wine production dates back to 1837, and is thus one of the oldest in Germany. 100% Riesling. The grapes for this sparkling wine are carefully selected from neighboring vineyards in the Pfalz region. The rich & fertile loamy soil is ideal for Riesling. The second fermentation takes place in small pressure tanks (the Charmant method) and aged for 15-18 months on the lees, whereby the legal minimum is 9 months. The pressure in tank rises naturally to a very high 8 atmospheres, and after filtering and cooling to near freezing point which avoids any loss of sparkle, the bot UPC: tling takes place next to the tanks in direct proximity. Sekt is the German word for sparkling wine. Tasting notes: A delicious dry sparkling wine with very fine sparkle and long-lasting effervescence. Combined fragrances of fresh fruit as well as, aromas ranging from apple to pineapple and tangerine. Clean, fresh, and well-balanced to enjoy.
