New Release - 2016 Querencia Brut Rosé (1 x 750 ml)

Querencia is a Brut Rosé sparkling wine, produced solely from fruit grown in the Napa Valley Carneros region. Chardonnay forms the blends core, providing a relatively light-bodied, crisp and tangy palate. Small additions of Pinot Noir fermented with skin contact add berry brightness and color.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Querencia contribute to the Jack L. Davies Napa Valley Agricultural Land Preservation Fund, which supports future agricultural preservation and education efforts in Napa County. Established by the Davies family in 1998 upon the passing of Schramsberg founder Jack Davies, the fund builds on his 30-year legacy as a strong advocate for the preservation of agricultural land. Jack played an instrumental role in the establishment of the Napa Valley Agricultural Preserve in 1968, which has become a national model for the protection of agriculture. The preserve celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018.

The wine was named by James Hickey, long-time Napa County planning director. The name is a Spanish word meaning the deep and abiding affection one has for the place one calls home. It refers to the sense of being nourished by the place in which you belong, and the balance that exists between the land and its stewards. The Querencia is hearty enough to compliment the robust flavors of Mediterranean cooking and delicate enough to be served with a truly broad range of appetizers.

The 2016 vintage was a near-perfect growing season with ideal weather condition throughout. Thanks to a relatively steady and mild July and August, and then a series of warm days at the end of the growing season, vineyards were able to progress to perfect ripeness for the light yields that were present.

Tasting notes

The 2016 Querencia has vibrant aromas of ripe strawberry, nectarine, peach and honeydew melon, which are rounded off by hints of raspberry, mandarin orange and lemon zest. The palate sustains bright flavors of ripe citrus, pear, ginger, lemon-lime, apricot that linger elegantly in the mouth with a pleasing dryness and crisp acidity on the finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson and Hugh Davies
