Wine Review: This light yellow colored sparkler opens with light nutty and bread dough like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is light bodied and zesty with lemon and mineral notes throughout. The finish is dry, tingly, and lingers nicely. This refreshing sparkler would pair very well with appetizers. Spring rolls came to mind for me. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: "The fruitful aromas of the wine’s youth are still vibrant, with fresh green apple, lime and pineapple jumping out of the glass. Refined, bottle-aged characters of hazelnut, honey, and baked brioche chime in. The palate pleases with a crisp entry and the flavorful essences of white peach, key lime, and juicy tropical fruit. While a creamy depth builds on the mid-palate, the wine’s distinct acid backbone and a certain mineral drive stretch into a long, riding finish. The 2001 J. Schram should develop beautifully for at least 20 more years." – Winemakers Hugh Davies and Keith Hock
