Notes on the Schramsberg Vineyards Brut Rose 750ML 2009

Tasting Notes The wine presents aromas and flavors of strawberry, raspberry and cherries with notes of candied mango, pineapple and papaya. A juicy viscosity leads to a long, lingering finish.

Wine Maker Notes Our Brut Rose is flavorful, complex and dry, making it both versatile with food and delicious by itself as an aperitif. Each fall we select base wines with the right concentration, balance, and length to create this unique sparkling wine. The character of this wine is most strongly influenced by the elegance of Pinot Noir, but small amounts of Chardonnay add spice, structure and length on the palate.

Hand picking, careful handling and gentle pressing produce a wine without skin and seed tannin. The wine then ages on the yeast for about two and a half years, just enough to achieve refined effervescence without diminishing its fresh appeal.

Each year, the fruit from a few small Pinot Noir vineyard blocks are ripened for an additional two weeks in the vine, then crushed and fermented on the skins to produce select Pinot Noir base wine lots. The ultimate sparkling wine's subtle Rose color and its focused strawberry/raspberry-like flavors are marked by the 2-3additions of these red wines prior to the initial bottling and again with the finishing dosage.

Enjoy the rich, delicious sparkler on almost any occasion: at your favorite restaurant, with special dinner at home at a tailgate picnic or a backyard barbecue. Try it with grilled salmon, seared ahi tuna, juicy duck tenderloin, flavorful pasta dishes, with aged cheeses and dried meats, or with assorted fruits.

Among other notable events, this sparkling wine was selected for White House luncheons honoring the Grand Duke and Duchess of Luxembourg, and later Prince Charles and Princess Diana of Great Britain.

Technical Notes (70% Pinot Noir/30% Chardonnay). The fruit was hand-picked and gently pressed. Selected lots of Pinot Noir that were fermented on their skins provide depth and subtle color to the blend; along similar lines, certain lots of barrel fermented wines (28%) were also added to the blend to lend richness and body. The finished cuvee was aged on its lees nearly two years.
