Weinrieder Sekt Cuvée Blanc Brut NV
87 in stock
This is a premium classic bottle-fermented Austrian Sekt, matured for 24 months using the Champagne method.
Austrian SEKT is extremely difficult to find in the UK and should be snapped up where it’s found!
If you’re not drinking Austrian Sekt, you’re mssing out on a unique sparkling wine experience. This seriously underappreciated sparkling wine is also amazing value when compared to some of its contemporaries such as Champagne.
Notes of freshly cut pear, quince, elderflower, melon and honey with a hint of yeast and pepper on the nose. Frothy, fine bubbles on the palate with lively foam mousse, delivers creamy, lemony freshness, biscuity and spicy on this light-bodied and easygoing dry Sekt. Ages very well.
Sekt is a delicious aperitif wine, but also a very versatile food wine – goes well with traditional Austrian cuisine such as Wiener Schnitzel, but also with a wider range of dishes such as roast pork.
Vegan friendly. Serve well chilled at about 8 °C
These wines are listed in some of the top Michelin Star restaurants in the world and have consistently rated from 90-95 Points from Robert Parker, the Wine Advocate. Decanter Magazine 90/92/93/95/95 points and Wine Spectator 92/92 points. From Wolfgang Puck’s Spago in Beverley Hills, to Heston Blumenthal’s Fat Duck Restaurant in London.
Considered to be one of the best wines of Austria by International Wine press and critics. This unique winery is located in Kleinhadersdorf west of the municipality of Poysdorf in the Weinviertel wine-growing region in Lower Austria. The vines cover just 20 hectares of vineyards in the best south and south-west locations on loess and clay soils in the Birthal, Bockgärten, Hohenleiten, Kugler and Schneiderberg vineyards.
The south-westerly location and the proximity to the forest give the grapes a cool ripeness with fine fruit and beautiful acidity.
Soil: loess / sand / gravel, south-west facing, near the forest
All Weinrieder wines are Vegan friendly!
… at the same time, the WEINRIEDER shocked me with fruity and
noble sweet Rieslings that can be and still are of world – class quality …

Champagne method. Aged in the bottle for 24 months.
The winery is located in Kleinhadersdorf west of the municipality of Poysdorf in the Weinviertel wine-growing region in Lower Austria. The vineyards cover 20 hectares of vineyards in the best south and south-west locations on loess and clay soils in the Birthal, Bockgärten, Hohenleiten, Kugler and Schneiderberg vineyards.
They are planted exclusively with the white grape varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc. The balanced microclimate and the fertile loess and clay soils make excellent wines possible.
In the vineyard, natural viticulture takes place with protection of beneficial insects, greening, as well as rigorous yield limitation through short pruning and consistent thinning. Very late grape harvest, gentle processing, minimal use of cellar technology and long aging on the lees result in wines with strength and character.
The wines are exported to a total of 30 countries, including China, Russia, Japan and the USA, where they can be found on the menu of the best restaurants.
