KrimSekt Brut 2009 - Ukraine

A traditional-method Ukrainian fizz from Artwinery

Based in Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine, Artwinery was founded in 1950 and produced its first wines in 1954.

Despite the name, this is not a sekt from Crimea (Krim); it is made, unusally for this part of the world, by secondary fermentation from Chardonnay, Riesling and Aligote with at least three years' aging in tunnels over 70 metres deep.

KrimSekt Brut 2009 Citrus and sherbert, slightly aromatic and floral with a saline-minerality and creamy oatmeal; adept, faultless and very pleasant.

Serve as an aperitif or with seafood starters.
