Description

In 1965, Jack and Jamie Davies established Schramsberg on property originally owned by Jacob Schram, setting out to make world class sparkling wine to rival the prestige and quality of French Champagne. Their son Hugh now manages the estate, which is located in Napa Valley’s Diamond Mountain District, totaling 220 acres with 50 acres under vine. Its historic caves, which cover 30,000 square feet, were dug in the 1880s. Schramsberg produces limited quantities of traditionally hand crafted sparkling wines from grapes grown in many cool climate vineyards throughout the North Coast. They are unique among California sparkling wine houses in that they barrel ferment 25% of their juice to produce rich, flavorful, complex wines. A world class winery and recognized leader in the California wine industry, Schramsberg produces America’s finest sparkling wines which have been served proudly at state functions at the White House and abroad for decades.

This wine is dry and crisp with abundant flavors of lemon, apple, pear and pineapple. Small lots of malolactic and barrel-fermented wines are added for complexity. The wine is aged on the yeast lees in the bottle for about three years prior to disgorgement. With its bright fruit and crisp characters, this sparkling wine will maintain its freshness, structure and refined finish for many years following its initial release. This is our "oysters on the half shell" sparkling wine with a citrus-like crispness that make it ideal with a variety of fresh seafood. It is also delicious by itself as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to light poultry, cheese, and vegetable courses.

Elegant and sleekly styled, with appealing aromas of green apple and almond brioche, featuring focused, layered flavors lemon curd, cinnamon and ginger. Drink now through 2015.—T.F.
