Mirabelle Brut Rosé (1 x 750 ml)

The counterpart to our Mirabelle Brut, the Mirabelle Brut Rosé is a specially crafted blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Schramsberg’s select cool-climate vineyards in the Carneros, Anderson Valley, Sonoma Coast and Marin County areas of Northern California.

The grapes are picked by hand and gently pressed to provide superior quality juice for the production of this balanced, refreshing rosé bubbly. In the spring following the fall harvest, base wines are individually evaluated and carefully blended by our winemakers. Pinot Noir lots, including a few fermented with skin contact, provide brightness of berry fruit and body, while Chardonnay lots lend length and zest to the palate. Additional flavor depth and aromatic complexity results from the blending of base wine lots aged in barrels and tanks for one or more years. The wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle and rests in Schramsberg’s historic Diamond Mountain caves for approximately two years. Following the en tirage aging, an extensive dosage trial process produces the ideal finishing touch, and the sparkling wine is ready to be enjoyed. The finished Brut Rosé exhibits fresh, elegant, and toasty aromas that lead into lively and delicious fruit flavors on the palate.

The multi-vintage Mirabelle Rosé is delicious on its own, and it also pairs well with everything from grilled salmon, country fried chicken, BBQ pork ribs, Caprese salad, poke tuna, classic Hawaiian pizza or simple pastas.

Tasting notes

The Mirabelle Rosé has generous aromas of watermelon, raspberry, and kumquat. The hints of glazed pear and apricot delicately join the bright bursting flavors of strawberry and red plum. The palate is tangy on entry with a mouthwatering acidity and a long, lingering finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies

Reviews

93 Points
This medium-bodied, elegant wine blends red-apple and red-cherry aromas with a nervy, brisk texture and flavors tinged with cinnamon. Made with 86% Pinot Noir and the remainder Chardonnay, 39% of the blend was barrel fermented. It feels smooth and brisk at the same time and has great overall balance.- Wine Enthusiast (November 2019)

Sleek and vibrant, featuring floral and multilayered strawberry and apple flavors, laced with graham cracker and toasted nut notes.- Wine Spectator (December 2019)
90 Points
This sparkling wine from Schramsberg opens with a nose of raspberry, basil and caramelized strawberry. The palate has notes of basil and sage alongside, strawberry, raspberry, and cranberries. The finish is well kept with the acidity present enough to clean up and leave your mouth salivating for more. This sparkler would pair great with smoked salmon or on its own.- Ken's Wine Guide (November 2019)
