In my never-ending quest to find fresh, crisp, non-yeasty/doughy sparklers, I have arrived in an unexpected place and grape. Germany. Riesling. I guess you have to tip your hat to both riesling and chenin blanc; is there anything they can’t do?
The Raumland Riesling Brut Sekt is the kind of bubbly that you can drink gallons of. It’s a shade under 30 bucks, and I would rather pocket the extra 15 bucks that you would have to spend for Champagne. Delicious!
