From the inception of Schramsberg’s efforts in 1965, the winery has sought to achieve the greatest elegance
and individuality possible in our sparkling wines. J. Schram epitomizes Schramsberg’s philosophy to create
a wine in which no effort has been spared and no care has been omitted. Representing only 3% of the winery’s
annual production, the Chardonnay-focused J. Schram blend is assembled from the very best base wine lots
of the approximately 250 produced each year. This special bottling is dedicated to Schramsberg’s founder,
Jacob Schram, and has been a great success since its premier 1987 vintage was released in 1992.
Tasting Notes “The 2006 J. Schram opens with bright aromas of green apple, ripe grapefruit
and sweet pineapple followed by exotic nuances of mango, guava, panna cotta and toasted almond.
On first sip, tangerine and kaffir lime are presen, which are accentiated by layers of tart pear and Fuji apple.
The palate's texture is viscous and
savory on entry. A long finish is driven by generous mouthwatering and
-Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
J. Schram is quite appealing on its own as an apéritif or enjoyed with fresh shellfish, caviar on toast point,
smoked salmon, tangy and sharp cheeses, seafood brochettes, cedar-planked lobster, mesquite-grilled quail,
or Serrano ham & porcini risotto.
