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.

Gustav Klimt Adele Blanc de Blancs Brut produced from 100% Chardonnay, is hand-harvested from growers in Leithaberg. Alcoholic fermentation with Champagne yeasts in stainless steel tanks precedes second fermentation in bottle and twenty months en tirage. Riddling is by gyropalette, and the dosage is with local sweet wine. The portrait of Adele Bloch-Bauer on the label is from Klimt's golden phase. The painting lives today at the Neue Galerie in New York

“Rich yeasty nose, brioche. Broad but concentrated, ample weight of fruit, has depth of flavour and persistence, with a toasty finish.”
