Wine Background:
Szigeti (pronounced ZIG-it-ee) began in 1991 when brothers Norbert and Peter Szigeti took over the family business, operating as a négociant, buying fruit from contracted growers and owning no vineyards. The beautiful label comes from Gustav Klimt's "Adele" which hangs today in the Neue Gallerie in New York City.

This Blanc de Blancs Brut is produced from 100% Chardonnay, hand-harvested from growers in Burgenland. Alcoholic fermentation with Champagne yeasts in stainless steel tanks precedes second fermentation in the bottle and 48 months en tirage. Riddling is by gyropalette, and the dosage is with local sweet wine. It is a classic example of Blanc de Blancs, with an Austrian flair.

Tasting Notes:
Gustav Klimt Adele Blanc de Blancs Brut shows notes of green apple and citrus with salty minerality and a subtle toastiness from aging forty-eight months on the lees. The wine crisp and clean-tasting on the palate with a lingering dry finish.

Food Pairing:
This Blanc de Blancs Brut will accent simply prepared fish and shellfish like the way a squeeze of lemon might. The citrus character of this wine will highlight the brininess of raw oysters, sushi, or grilled prawns while its acidity and texture perfectly compliment grilled halibut with lemon beurre blanc.
