Szigeti Grüner Veltliner Brut

Szigeti Grüner Veltliner Brut

Wine Description

Szigeti (pronounced ZIG-it-ee) began in 1991 when brothers Norbert and Peter Szigeti took over the family business. Szigeti operates as a négociant, buying fruit from contracted growers and owning no vineyards. A broad range of wines are produced, all by the traditional method, and all made in fresh style with clear varietal expression.

Szigeti produces wine from contracted growers in Burgenland and Niederösterreich and works closely with their partners to obtain grapes explicitly grown to produce quality sparkling wine. The designation "Österreichischer Sekt g.U." (Austrian Sekt with Protected Designation of Origin) applies to the entire production.

Grüner Veltliner Brut is hand-harvested from contracted growers in Burgenland and Niederösterreich. Alcoholic fermentation with Champagne yeasts in stainless steel tanks precedes second fermentation in bottle and twelve months aging en tirage. Riddling is by gyropalette, and the dosage is with local sweet wine.

“An aromatic version, with exotic floral notes and tropical fruit at the core. It shows crunchy texture and moderate length on the finish.”
— Wine Enthusiast, Nov 2022
“This is round and ripe, with a silky texture behind the fine bubbles. It has a vegetal sweetness, like roasted red peppers, that suggests a match with cheese biscuits or pimiento cheese and crackers.”
— Wine & Spirits, Aug 2022
