2006 Extra Brut 2006 Extra Brut

The "Extra Brut" is produced for the growing number of sparkling enthusiasts who on occasion enjoy a very, very dry sparkling wine. These sparkling wines are finished with a dosage of between 0.3 - 0.6 g/100ml of residual sugar, about half that of the omnipresent "Brut" offerings. A progression towards a drier "Brut" has occurred in the sparkling wine world in the past two decades as producers have been able to develop brighter intensity of fruit flavor in the grapes that they grow. This transition has absolutely happened at Schramsberg, where cooler climate vineyards have produced grapes with not only higher acidity, but also riper Pinot Noir and Chardonnay characteristics.

It is ready to enjoy upon release, but will surely age beautifully for another two decades or more to come. Th is opulent and racy style will match extraordinarily well on the raw side with caviar and ceviche, but will also pair perfectly on the cooked side with smoked oysters, mushroom tarts, and veal picatta. A simple antipasto sampling with prosciutto, sopresatta, gouda, pecorino, artichoke heart, and cured olives will also shine alongside.

Tasting Notes -"The 2006 Extra Brut is our first release of an extra dry sparkling wine. Aromas of juicy peach and nectarine are present in addition to more developed character of clove, warm vanilla custard, marzipan and oven-fresh sourdough bread.On fi rst taste there are flavors of lime, pineapple and orange marmalade, followed by nuances of dark cherry and some rhubarb, which are accentuated by hazelnut and black tea. The palate is crisp and tangy with a mouth watering acidity that is long and lingering."

Shipping Policy

Exposure to excessive cold or heat has been proven to damage wine.  In an effort to maintain our high standards of quality, we recommend shipping wines via 2-Day Air or FedEx Cold Chain to most locations to avoid exposure to extreme weather conditions. You will be contacted by email if there is a concern for the delivery of your order.  You can contact the winery at 800-877-3623 for shipping options or if you have questions about your order.

We are currently unable to ship to the following states: DE, IN, KY, LA, MA, MS, OK, PA, RI, SD, UT
(Some restrictions apply in states where we can ship) Alabama and Arizona.

If you place an order on Thursday through Sunday, it will usually NOT ship until the following  Monday or Tuesday.  If you need expedited shipping, please call us at 800-877-3623 (weekdays only) and we will make every attempt to help out. Not all shipping options are available to all states. (In lieu of FedEx 2-Day we use UPS 2-Day, if available, in your state.) While we do not have an overnight option listed in our online store, we encourage you to contact us by phone, and every effort will be made to accommodate your special request.
We strongly encourage you to select a business address for shipping, as no packages of wine can be left without an adult signature obtained by the driver…it’s the law. We are sorry, but we do not process orders over the weekend.
