2014 Querencia Brut Rosé (1 x 750 ml)
Querencia Brut Rosé was created to honor the memory and spirit of our cofounder Jack Davies. Jack Davies was a pioneer in the early days of the Napa Valley Agricultural Preserve, and fought for environmental issues with dedication and vigor. To insure that Jack's work was kept alive, Schramsberg established the Jack L. Davies Fund. Proceeds from the sale of Querencia contribute to the Jack L. Davies Fund, which supports agricultural preservation and education efforts in Napa County. Jack Davies encouraged the community to support the preserve that became a model for conservation of agricultural lands across the country. James Hickey, then the Napa County Planning Director, and architect of the agricultural preserve, named the wine. The name is a Spanish word "meaning the deep and abiding affection one has for the place one calls home."
Querencia is produced solely from fruit grown in the Napa Valley Carneros region. Chardonnay forms the blend's core, providing a relatively light-bodied, crisp and tangy palate. Small additions of Pinot Noir fermented with skin contact add berry brightness and color. This brut rosé sparkling wine is hearty enough to complement the robust flavors of Mediterranean cooking and delicate enough to be served with a truly broad range of appetizers.
The 2014 Querencia blooms with bright aromas of raspberry, mandarin orange and peach, which are rounded off by hints of red apple, pear and strawberry. The palate sustains vibrant flavors of juicy citrus, apricot, mango, and key lime, that linger in the mouth thanks to a strong acidic backbone, and finishes with crispness and balance.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
