Notes from the Winemaker:
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.

Hand picking, careful handling and gentle pressing produce a wine of delicacy, free of skin and seed tannin. Following the fall harvest and base winemaking period, an extensive process of blending trial and refinement is carried out in the spring. The finished blend is aged on the yeast in the bottle for about two years, just enough to achieve refined effervescence and toastiness without diminishing its refreshing, vibrant appeal.

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.

Tasting notes
"The 2015 Brut Rosé has generous aromas of candied orange, raspberry preserve, cranberry and orange blossom. Its fruitful nose is complemented by notes of vanilla, honey and brioche. On the palate, there are juicy flavors of peach, strawberry shortcake and lemon curd, with soft touches of marzipan. The wine has a fresh, juicy acidity which drives to a bright, clean finish."

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Spectator:
"Graceful and creamy, with snappy rose petal, raspberry, citrus and graham cracker accents that finish on a vibrant note. Drink now.—T.F."

89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2014 vintage):
"A blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, sourced mainly from Napa and Sonoma with a little Mendocino and Marin fruit, the 2014 Brut Rose has a very pale salmon-pink color and very pretty nose of faded roses, crushed raspberries and red currants with hints of spiced apples and lightly browned toast. The palate has a great intensity of red berry and toasty flavors with a lovely creaminess and plenty of zip to the finish." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Oct 2017)
