Weinviertler Sektmanufaktur Familie Hugl – Sauvignon blanc x Welschriesling 2008 – Silver Dessert

3rd January 2018


Congratulations to Weinviertler Sektmanufaktur Familie Hugl with their Sauvignon blanc x Welschriesling 2008 which received a silver 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 Dessert: “Dessert wine with Stilton or lemon tart… Yum! A wine that may take ages to develop and likely not to be a simple wine, sweet experience yet complex in taste.

A seasoned sparkling wine, but despite its age, the Sauvignon Welschriesling cuvée is still very typical of the variety. A delicate perlage accompanied by pleasant yeast aromas, this sparkling wine pairs well with desserts.
