Founded back in 1856 - Henkell Trocken is not only Germany's favourite, but also their most exported sparkling wine, with more than 20 million bottles sold world-wide per year.
The taste is fresh, lively, with a subtle fragrant suggestion of tropical fruit on the nose. Its delicate pale straw colour is enlivened through the play of gold reflections around the edge. Henkell Trocken Dry Sec sparkling wine - sparkles with vivacious and long lasting effervescence. A fine bouquet of fruity notes, citrus characters make Henkell Trocken invitingly light and palatable. The taste is fresh, tingling, with a lingering finish, while a subtle fragrance entices you back for more.
This dry, fully matured sparkling wine owes its elegant character to a unique Cuvee of excellent wines originating from such classic grape varieties as French Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Blanc de Noir from French Pinot Noir and Chenin from Saumur. The finely blended, harmonious composition makes Henkell Trocken a well-balanced, consummate taste experience - and one to be shared. Serve at 7-8C.
Drinking perfectly well this coming summer season; or as an aperitif any time.
