Here we have Bibo Runge's fantastic Sekt blended with a splash of red wine to create this delicious, red-rose stained sparkler. We have no idea what it's blended with. After tasting it, every suggestion we came up with was greated by a shake of the head and an enigmatic smile from Markus Bonsels of Bibo Runge. Apparently it's a closely guarded trade secret. All we know is that the perfectly judged "splash" brings just the right amount our sweet, red summer fruits to the party without masking the quality of the Sekt it's based on.Bibo Runge
Very intense. Pure citrus sits alongside perfectly ripe stone fruit aromas on the nose which follows through on the palate revealing layers of flavour - complex and satisfying.
Manually harvested, the grapes are then pressed in a pneumatic press and then transferred to refrigerated vats overnight to allow the sediment to settle. The fermentation starts naturally in the vat and is allowed to continue until the alcohol reaches about 6% . After a light filtration, the wine is bottled and the fermentation goes on, generating the C02 that forms the bubbles until the yeasts are actually killed by the pressure in the bottle (4 bars).
The bottles are then disgorged to remove yeast.
Nice pink color, subtle red fruit aromas. Nice attack, with a slight foam and bubbles. Its sweetness and its delicate aromas make it the perfect aperitif or dessert wine.
