Thank you for this information.
So i have a very good sparkling wine here.
It is correkt to say it is a carbonated riesling?
If it was made as a sparkling wine and you purchased it as a sparkling wine,
then I think it remains a sparkling wine. If you added the carbonation
yourself, you can call it a carbonated riesling. bill
If you do call it a carbonated riesling then nobody
will be entirely happy, as it is a term not in
Carbonated drinks are normally thought of as Cola,
Tonic Water and the like - the things you often see
in cans which the Americans call "soda" and the
English call "pop".
"Sparkling Riesling" would do much better for the wine.
Yes, but it would be misleading advertising. It hides the
fact that somebody used mechanical means to carbonate the
stuff at home. If you knew that, would you still buy it? bill
I think there is a mismatch between the idea of pressurising
wine at home and that of then selling it. In my mind using a
Sodastream machine (or whatever they might be called where
you are) to inject CO2 into a still wine is the precursor of
home consumption rather than commercial sale.
It would be interesting to learn if the Sekt made by
carbonation makes this clear in the large print or
the small print.
One would think that the majority of Sekt on commercial
sale was produced by the tank method.
