94pointsStyring 2017 Rixi Brut Methode Champenoise Sparkling (Ribbon Ridge)

Editors' Choice

This outstanding wine rises to the level of a top quality German Sekt. It's 100% estate-grown Riesling, vinified according to the méthode Champenoise, and might comfortably be placed in a flight of sparkling wines from traditional Champagne grapes. There's a touch of sweetness, to be sure, but just a very light touch. The lively bubbles and roundly toasty mix of citrus and apples, along with a hint of vanilla cookie, keep the flavors compounding through a lengthy finish. Paul Gregutt
