2015 Blanc de Noirs (1 x 750 ml)
Making a white wine from a red grape requires great care – hand-picked fruit, early morning harvest, optimal fruit maturity and delicate pressing. A balance of bright flavors, crisp acidity and minimal tannins is achieved. Barrel and malolactic fermentation of particular wine lots add richness and body. Yeast contact in the bottle harmonizes all the elements together in a mature, toasty style. The youthful fruit character of the wine will develop and soften with additional age in the bottle. With proper storage, this sparkling wine will be delicious for many years, even a couple of decades to come.
Schramsberg Blanc de Noirs is particularly well-suited to serve with a variety of foods, including soft and nutty cheeses, macadamia nut-crusted halibut, and pork tenderloin with fresh rosemary and lemon thyme.
The 2015 year 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.

The 2015 Blanc de Noirs expresses generous aromas of white peach, dried mango and fresh honeycomb, which gradually layer with fragrances of milk chocolate and marzipan. Rich flavors coat the palate with apricot, strawberry cream, almond and dark spice, while a lively acidic backbone gives way to a candied ginger and Mandarin orange finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
Bold in texture and flavor, this wine offers toasty, lightly smoky aromas that segue to vanilla, toasted almond and baked apple flavors. The pinpoint bubbles tighten the texture just a bit for good balance before a creamy midpalate and finish take over.- Wine Enthusiast (November 2019)
This straw-colored Blanc de Noirs displays many medium sized streaming bubbles. It opens with a gentle bread dough and green grape bouquet with hints of lychee. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mineral influenced lemon with notes of ginger. We also detected hints of white pepper, strawberry and grapefruit. The finish is refreshing and its flavors drift away nicely. This Sparkler would pair well with wild mushroom appetizers.- Ken's Wine Guide (October 2019)
