Schramsberg Vineyards Reserve 2001 750ml

Schramsberg Vineyards Reserve

The Schramsberg Reserve is our top Pinot Noir-based sparkling wine. Representing two per cent of our annual production, this richly-flavored and full-bodied sparkling wine is made from only the finest base wine lots each year. Six years old upon release, this fruitful, creamy bubbly will age gracefully for ten or more years to come.

The Reserve is a Blanc de Noirs style sparkler, a white wine gently crafted from red grapes. Hand picking, early harvesting and light pressing are critical. Small amounts of select Chardonnay are included in the blend to lend some additional backbone and length to the palate.

(70% Pinot Noir/30% Chardonnay). More than 80 cool climate vineyard sites in Carneros, AndersonValley and the Sonoma and Marin coastal areas are managed each year to achieve the best possiblefruit. Hand-picking, early morning harvesting and light pressing are critical. Small amounts of selectChardonnay are included in the blend to lend additional backbone and length to the palate. Barrelfermentation (46%) and malolactic of particular lots provide viscosity and depth. Extensive tasting isconducted over the winter months, with as many as 200 base wines being taken into consideration. Eachbottle is aged 3 months on the lees and a minimum of five years in Schramsberg's historic DiamondMountain hillside caves. The finishing dosage is the result of comprehensive trials to fine tune balance offlavor and acidity.

The Reserve is well suited for service with main courses, especially such choices as veal tenderloin and roast duck, or with full-flavored fish such as sea bass. This delicious bubbly also pleases as an aperitif. Try it with smoked oysters, caviar or crab cakes.
