Leitz Eins Zwei ZERO Sparkling (750ml)
The Leitz family has a history in winemaking as far back as 1744. In 1985 Johannes Leitz took over the family winery in Rudesheim and has grown the estate from 2.9 hectares to 40 hectares and has gained national and international recognition for his wines all while staying true to his root. He worked closely with the Ministry of Environment to restore traditional terraces above Rudesheim in the Berg Rottland and Berg Kaisersteinfels vineyards. The impressively steep Leitz vineyards are blessed with 100% southern exposure, thus ensuring optimal ripening and good drainage which is needed for these complex and mineral driven wines.
This is a non-alcoholic wine that shines all year round as an alcohol-free companion for every festive occasion.
EINS-ZWEI-ZERO Sparkling offers a fine interplay of crisp apples and fine bubbles with well-integrated acidity and a long-lasting freshness. It pairs perfectly with mussels and light pasta; truffled or with seafood. It is ideal as an aperitif and shines all year round as an alcohol-free companion for every festive occasion.
Made from Sustainably grown Riesling grapes. The juice is fermented and rests for a period in stainless steel. Before bottling, to remove the alcohol from the wine, a gentle vacuum distillation has been used, in order to preserve the natural grape flavours. This method extracts alcohol under extremely low pressure and temperature (around 30°C). No flavours will be lost through the treatment of the wine through the dealcoholisation process. With this method results in a “real” ZERO – 0.0 % vol. Acidity 7.1 g/L and Residual Sugar 38.9 g/L
The EINS-ZWEI-ZERO Sparkling Riesling is a very appealing, alcohol-free sparkling wine, which is very fresh and juicy right from the start.
