Wine Review: This white gold colored sparkler from Schramsberg was our top finisher in our first big blind tasting. It opens with a musty faint peach bouquet with hints of yeast and lychee. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and mouthwatering. The flavor profile is a mineral infused green apple with notes of ginger ale. The panel also detected hints of strawberry and cherry as well. The finish is dry and its acidity and flavors linger and stick around for a very long time. The panel suggested pairing this wine with shrimp scampi. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2010 Blanc de Noirs has bright aromas of red cherry, peach, apricot, Mandarin orange and mango. The fruitful nose finishes with nuances of lemon-raspberry tart and marzipan. The palate is full on entry with flavors of raspberry, candied pineapple, guava, and ginger, complimented with notes of hazelnut and warm pastry crust. Crisp on entry with a balanced acidity, the palate is refined and lingering.
