2004 Brut Napa Valley (1 x 750 ml)
While we harvested our first fruit from Carneros back in 1985, this 2004 offering is only the fifth time we have released a Schramsberg sparkling wine solely from the fruit grown in this viticultural appellation.
Following in the track of the previous 1998, 2001, 2002 and 2003 Brut Napa releases, this bright, crisp sparkler will age beautifully, evolving for 20+ years to come with attractive caramelized, nutty and toasted flavor attributes.
With approximately four years of aging on the yeast, this vibrant and complex wine combines a rich texture with a delightfully crisp entry to the palate. Made in limited quantities and highlighting our best vintages from this exceptional growing region, it is a rare treat for us to release this sparkling wine.
Following an early bud break and very mild spring, the relatively easy growing season of 2004 produced intense, forward Chardonnay fruit. The 2004 Brut Napa Valley has aromas of bright citrus, green apple and peach cobbler. Hints of candied walnuts and baked sourdough add attractive nuance. Inviting flavors of tangy melon and fresh pineapple fill the palate, leading to a finish of balanced and lingering acidity.- Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
