Schloss Biebrich NV "Sekt" review by (PB)
Another Trader Joe's wine I grabbed it more out of curiosity than anything else. First German sparkling wines are not often seen in my neck of the woods and at the price of $6 I wondered if it could be drinkable.
Pale yellow presentation with scant, pin prick bubbles. Scant aromas but what is there is flowery and perfumy, non-descript.
Palate--a faint nuttiness on an off dry foundation that is lacking most everything but chilled way down, as a toasting wine with unsuspecting friends it is actually pretty decent for the price so raise a glass.
