2015 J. Schram Rosé (1 X 750 ml)

Schramsberg, the pioneer of ultra-premium quality American sparkling wines, is proud to present its thirteenth vintage of our J. Schram Rosé. This sparkling wine is the result of a singular focus to produce a California sparkling rosé as fine as any made in the world.

This wine is blended from the vintages best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wine lots from Schramsbergs collection of 120 coolclimate vineyard sites within Carneros, Anderson Valley, Sonoma Coast and Marin County. Following secondary fermentation in the bottle, this wine was aged on its yeast lees for over seven years in Schramsbergs historic caves. It was then hand-riddled and finished with a select brut dosage. It is the companion to Schramsbergs J. Schram Blancs and J. Schram Noirs, considered by many to be the ultimate expressions of artisan American sparkling wine.

J. Schram Rosé is the epitome of grace, style and elegance in a glass. It lends itself to be served as an apéritif, with a first course or with a light main course. Fresh crab, scallop ceviche, seared swordfish, roasted poultry, or braised pork loin are all well-suited pairings.

2015 delivered California vintners a stellar vintage. A mild winter led to an early bud break, followed by a protracted bloom during an unseasonably cooler spring, which contributed to smaller grape clusters and variable crop size. A steady and moderate weather pattern during ripening allowed for gradual maturity within the grapes and exceptional quality upon harvest.

Tasting notes

This 2015 J. Schram Rosé opens with tantalizing aromas of peach, apricot, plum, and fresh fig, interlaced with marzipan, baking spices, ginger, honey, and vanilla chiffon. The palate presents a juicy entry of mango, cherry, and orange cream, with a bright center and finishes with hints of brioche and graham cracker. A balanced and lingering finish completes the tasting experience.- Winemakers Sean Thompson, Jessica Koga, and Hugh Davies
