Top 10 sparkling wines of 2018

8 Reverchon, Riesling, Sekt, Crémant, Brut, Hessen, Germany, 2010  

When hunting for something fizzy and unfamiliar – don’t forget Sekt (which should perhaps be the strapline for exporters of this distinctly German product).

Made from Riesling, the wines tend to be fresh, slightly floral, with plenty of apple and lime fruit flavours, and depending on the amount of time the fizz spends in contact with its lees, a touch of breadiness too.

This sekt, a 2010 vintage from the cellars of Weingut Reverchon, is a particularly good example, with a touch of dried fruit and a creamy texture, as well as a very dry, bright finish.

Approximate retail price: £18
