Wine Review: This dark straw colored sparkling wine from Schramsberg opens lots of random medium bubbles. The bouquet features mild bread dough and hazelnut bouquet with a hint of apple. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced, round, a little frothy and easy going. The flavor profile is a lemon and chalky minerality blend with notes of lime, and green apple. I also detected hints of white pepper and almond. The finish is dry and lingers nicely. I would enjoy this crowd pleasing sparkler with scallop appetizers. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The 2020 Blanc de Blancs has captivating aromas of Granny Smith apple, tangerine, and lemon-lime, complemented with layers of apple custard and apple tart. Flavors of fresh grapefruit, white peach, and golden apple anchor the palate, which follows with hints of ginger and vanilla chiffon. This bottlings finish is crisp, refreshing, and mouthwatering, in the long-established Schramsberg tradition.
