Mirabelle (1 x 750 ml)
As with Schramsberg’s single-vintage sparkling wines, all grapes for Mirabelle are grown in the cool-climate pockets of California’s North Coast, including Carneros, Anderson Valley, Sonoma Coast and Marin County. The fruit is hand-picked in the early morning hours at optimal maturity. Individual lot fermentations allow the winemakers to carefully select the components that make up the finished blend. After bottle fermentation and about two years of aging en tirage, subsequent trials determine the ideal dosage to finish this brut style.
Mirabelle Brut works well as a dry apéritif and is also well-suited as an accompaniment to a broad range of foods, including oysters on the half shell, sushi, baked halibut, cheeses and cream-based pasta dishes.
This Mirabelle Brut has generous fruitful aromas of pear, tangerine and ripe peach,followed by nuances of vanilla and star anise. In the mouth, there are flavors of mandarin orange, stone fruit and yellow apple. The palate is crisp on entry with a citrus acidity and a lingering finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
A creamy texture, buttery aromas and subtle ginger flavor make this wine from Schramsberg generous, complex and easy to love. Bosc pear, white peach, powdered ginger and cinnamon all combine for good complexity and concentration. Chardonnay leads the blend 68% to 32% Pinot Noir.- Wine Enthusiast (November 2018)
Delicately rich, with a hint of maturity, offering plush notes of roasted nut, Asian pear, cinnamon brioche and spice.- Wine Spectator (December 2018)
More concerned with polish and precision rather than dramatic richness, the latest edition of Mirabelle Brut is an articulate look at the Méthode Champenoise that combines nicely defined, slightly toasty yeast with a touch of mildly lemony fruit and sports a fine and insistent stream of tiny bubbles. It is in all ways a professional, very well-well-crafted effort and it delivers the goods at a comfortable price. GOOD VALUE.- Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (December 2018)
