Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Schramsberg Blanc De Blancs California Sparkling Wine 2005 Half-Size Btl. : 375ML Half BottleWINEMAKER NOTES: The length of the 2005 growing season allowed for the development of ripe fruit character. Fresh crisp apple, lemon chiffon and juicy pineapple all come to mind. Suggestions of warm brioche and hazelnut lead way to a pleasing palate bursting with ripe apple, key lime and plump apricot. The 2005 Blanc de Blancs finishes with refreshing acidity and a quenching palate. Winemakers Hugh Davies and Craig RoemerSCHRAMSBERG BLANC DE BLANCS CALIFORNIA SPARKLING WINE 2005 HALF-SIZE BTL.

Schramsberg Vineyards Company:
Schramsberg was originally established by Jacob Schram in 1862. The hillside vineyards reminded him of those used to grow Riesling in his native Germany, and he bought the land and began his wine-making business (he had been a barber by trade).

Schramsberg was originally established by Jacob Schram in 1862. The hillside vineyards reminded him of those used to grow Riesling in his native Germany, and he bought the land and began his wine-making business (he had been a barber by trade). Eventually the family sold the property, and nothing much of note really happened to it until Jack and Jamie Davies bought the land in 1965. The Davies' were specifically interested in making sparkling wines, but only discovered after moving onto the land that the hot Calistoga hillsides (Calistoga is typically 5 to 15 degrees warmer than the rest of the Napa Valley) were not particularly hospitable to the two grapes essential to champagne, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. They set about finding suppliers in other parts of the valley, and produced their first sparkling vintage in 1965. Widespread fame came in 1972, when President Nixon used the 1969 in his toast to China. Schramsberg has been the official sparkling wine of U.S. presidents ever since. Read less

Decent sparkling wine with lots of acidity, golden straw in color and lots of fresh apple in the nose with a bit of yeast. On the palate lots of acidity, with apple and a bit of pear with a medium finish.

Bright and lovely, this vivacious bubbly can barely contain the berry and candied citrus aromas that soar up from the glass. The exuberant bouquet is perfect preparation for the decadent palate impression, oozing stone fruits and subtle notes of vanilla and cream.
