Wijnkasteel – Zilveren Parel 2011 – Gold Sea Breeze
15th December 2017
Congratulations to Wijnkasteel with their Zilveren Parel (Silver Pearl) 2011 which received a Gold 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 Zilveren Parel is stored entirely in french oak wooden barrels. At the time of bottling, both yeast and sugar are added, so that the fermentation in the bottle can take place. The Zilveren Parel then ripens in the bottle together with these additions for at least 36 months.
