PRODUCT OVERVIEW:
Szigeti was established in 1991 by brothers Norbert and Peter Szigeti and they are sparkling wine specialists. As is typical in the region, they act as negociants, purchasing top quality grapes grown specifically for sparkling wine production from small local vineyards throughout this tiny region. Their bubbles have become standard bearers - and they have developed quite a following here in fine dining restaurants in the Boston area.

The 2015 Szigeti "Gustav Klimt Adele" Blanc de Blancs Brut is produced from 100% Chardonnay that has been hand-harvested. Alcoholic fermentation with Champagne yeasts in stainless steel tanks. Winemaker Krisztian Szucs utilized no oak or malolactic fermentation when crafting this wine in order to preserve it’s freshness and purity of fruit. After the primary fermentation is completed, a second fermentation in bottle is achieved followed by twenty months of aging en tirage. Riddling was achieved using gyropalettes, and the dosage utilized local wine.

This wine offers intense aromas and flavors of fresh citrus fruits and green apple. On the palate, these ebullient fruits are layered with mineral notes and a hint of toast. The wine finishes long, crisp and clean. The citrus character of this wine will highlight the brininess of raw oysters, sushi, or grilled prawns while its crisp acidity and texture perfectly compliment grilled halibut with lemon beurre blanc.

The portrait on the label is by Gustav Klimt, the most widely recognized Austrian artist of the 19th century. The portrait was created during what is known as Klimt's golden phase and features a woman by the name of Adele Bloch-Bauer with whom rumors of a torrid affair remain a subject of debate within fine art circles to this day.The painting lives today at the Neue Galerie in New York.
