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

Festive and fun to drink, with expressive cherry and graham cracker flavors that finish on a lush, yeasty accent.- Wine Spectator (November 2018)

Where once the Mirabelle bottlings were priced with the big winery entry level efforts, now it has grown up and sits just above that tier. And, here, in the pink version, it succeeds as a distinctly fruity and friendly offering with all the juicy exuberance that California grapes can bring to the party. Its aromas are pleasantly outgoing and its open, well-balanced flavors make it a wine to remember when choosing a bottle of bubbles for all sorts of happy occasions from tailgating to birthday celebrations.- Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (October 2016)

This bubbly from Schramsberg has a deepish, salmon color and peach, melon and ginger cookie aromas. It combines crispness and finesse, fruit with complexity. Hints of almond, walnut and subtle spices come out on the lingering finish.- Wine Enthusiast (December 2015)
