Weinviertler Sektmanufaktur Familie Hugl – Blanc de Noirs 2011 – Highly Commended Sea Breeze

18th January 2018


Congratulations to Weinviertler Sektmanufaktur Familie Hugl with their Blanc de Noirs 2011 which received a highly commended medal at The World’s Finest Glass of Bubbly awards 2017.

A panel of 36 top industry wine judges tasted all the entries for 2017 and were able to not only scores wines with medals, but also place them in to easy to understand categories such as Sea Breeze: “Some of us love refreshing, almost very zesty style of wines. When you taste this wine you will imagine yourself standing on the beach and tasting those tiny sea drops in the air.

The Blanc de Noirs is exclusively made from Zweigelt, which impresses with its yeasty aroma and creaminess. The art of making white wine from blue grapes is a speciality of Weinviertler.
