Markus Altenburger Brut Rosé Sekt (Elsewhere $25)

SKU #1036942

A sparkling cuvee of two very Austrian red wine grapes (blaufrankisch and zweigelt), which lends this wine its beautiful rose color, as well as its notes of wild cherry fruit, balanced by subtle yeast notes and just a hint of bitters. Fine streams of bubbles rise through the glass like strings of tiny pearls with the final effect being a wine that animates the senses and can’t help but make any occasion celebratory.

Beautiful wine in a great presentation. Little flat on the nose, but good fruit and mouthfeel.

Austria

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
