93pts Wine Enthusiast

Subtle flavors and a delicately rounded texture help this elegant, medium-bodied wine stand out. Hints of fresh bread and raspberries on the nose lead to slightly tangy flavors of ginger and white cherry on the palate. Gentle effervescence and just-right acidity lend lift.

 

91pts Wine Spectator

Vibrant and pretty, with delicate rose petal, strawberry and roasted almond accents that glide on the long finish. Drink now.

 

90pts Connoisseurs' Guide

64% Pinot Noir; 36% Chardonnay. Briskly fruity with a trim bit of yeast in both its aromas and flavors, this slightly light-leaning effort leads with a nose that inclines to Blanc de Noirs but edges its way into Rosé territory on the palate and shows a little more substance and size. Plentifully bubbled and very well-structured with but a barely noticeable trace of finishing astringency, it steers clear of candied simplicity and is balanced to be equally enjoyable with or without food. 

 

 

 

Winemaker Notes

Schramsberg Brut Rosé is flavorful, complex and dry, making it both versatile with food and delicious by itself as an apéritif. The character of the wine is most strongly influenced by bright, flavorful Pinot Noir grown in Carneros, Anderson Valley, and the Sonoma and Marin coastal areas. A few small lots of Pinot Noir are fermented in contact with their skins to add depth and subtle color to this unique sparkling wine. Chardonnay gives spice, structure and length on the palate.

Enjoy this rich, delicious sparkler on almost any occasion: at your favorite restaurant, a special dinner at home, at a beach picnic or a backyard barbecue. A very versatile wine; try it with sushi, salmon, rock shrimp, pizza, roast chicken, BBQ ribs, burgers, chocolate raspberry tarts and creamy cheeses with summer fruits.

Blend: 59% Pinot Noir, 41% Chardonnay
