Wine Review: This white gold colored sparkler from Schramsberg was well received by our mini-tasting group. It has lots of medium bubbles and opens a mild apple bouquet with a hint of lemon. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, slightly acidic and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a mineral infused Anjou pear and bread dough with hints of tart lemon. The finish is dry and its flavors linger for a little while. This sparkler would be best, served as an aperitif. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2009 Blanc de Noirs has concentrated aromas of red apple, apricot and orange marmalade, which are complemented with tropical notes of guava, mango & passion fruit. The fruitful nose is completed with essences of candied ginger and Meyer lemon tart. Flavors of orange, cherry and raspberry are present, followed by nuances of peach-berry cobbler. The wine enters crisp and lingers on the palate, finishing with a balanced and mouthwatering acidity.
