Wine Review: This pale straw colored sparkler from Schramsberg once again performed very well for the tasting panel. It opens with a caramel green apple bouquet with hints of beech wood and sea air. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, easy going and fresh. The flavor profile is lemon with notes of mild minerality and green apple. We also detected hints of bread dough and strawberry. The finish is dry and its fruit flavors, acidity, and minerals linger nicely after this wine is gone. The panel suggested pairing this very good sparkler with grilled lime shrimp or a baked scallop casserole. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The 2012 Blanc de Blancs has bright and fresh aromas of grapefruit, lime, green apple and white apricot. The fragrance of fruit is complemented with hints of yeast, white flowers, spicy ginger and fresh honeycomb. The lime, tangerine and pear flavors are tart and refreshing on entry. The palate is crisp with long lingering acidity.
