NEW: 2017 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.

For the 2017 vintage, abundant winter rains prior to the growing season helped recharge reservoirs and groundwater. Spring weather was cool to mild, with increased vine vigor and extended flowering in some areas. After a summer of heat spikes, harvest started in the beginning of August. Warm days and cool nights throughout harvest encouraged exceptional fruit development while maintaining bright acidity.

Tasting notes

The 2017 Querencia has a bright, fruitful bouquet of raspberry, orange zest, pineapple, and mango, with hints of cranberry, red apple, ruby red grapefruit, and honeysuckle. On the palate, crisp, clean acidity sustains lasting flavors of apricot, orange and candied lemon. Additional layers of fresh citrus rind and white peach lead to a refreshing quenching finish.-
