2015 Brut Rosé (1 x 750 ml)

Schramsberg Brut Rosé is flavorful, complex and dry, making it both versatile with food and delicious by itself as an apéritif. The character of the wine is most strongly influenced by bright, flavorful Pinot Noir grown in Carneros, Anderson Valley, and the Sonoma and Marin coastal areas. A few small lots of Pinot Noir are fermented in contact with their skins to add depth and subtle color to this unique sparkling wine. Chardonnay gives spice, structure and length on the palate.

Hand picking, careful handling and gentle pressing produce a wine of delicacy, free of skin and seed tannin. Following the fall harvest and base winemaking period, an extensive process of blending trial and refinement is carried out in the spring. The finished blend is aged on the yeast in the bottle for about two years, just enough to achieve refined effervescence and toastiness without diminishing its refreshing, vibrant appeal.

Enjoy this rich, delicious sparkler on almost any occasion: at your favorite restaurant, a special dinner at home, at a beach picnic or a backyard barbecue. A very versatile wine; try it with sushi, salmon, rock shrimp, pizza, roast chicken, BBQ ribs, burgers, chocolate raspberry tarts and creamy cheeses with summer fruits.

Tasting notes

The 2015 Brut Rosé has generous aromas of candied orange, raspberry preserve, cranberry and orange blossom. Its fruitful nose is complemented by notes of vanilla, honey and brioche. On the palate, there are juicy flavors of peach, strawberry shortcake and lemon curd, with soft touches of marzipan. The wine has a fresh, juicy acidity which drives to a bright, clean finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies

Graceful and creamy, with snappy rose petal, raspberry, citrus and graham cracker accents that finish on a vibrant note.- Wine Spectator (August 2018)

This elegant and well-balanced wine has a brilliant copper color, tangy cherry and apple-skin flavors and a mouth-filling mousse. It tastes nicely dry and a bit lean and nervy in character.- Wine Enthusiast (November 2018)
91 Points
A vinous rosé with creamy, red-fruit flavors of pinot noir, this is clean and lasting. The bubbles tame the touches of sweetness, so it feels fresh and sparkly. Serve it as you would a light pinot, as an elegant match for roast fish, like sea bass with chanterelles.- Wine & Spirits (December 2018)
