Yeasty with apple-ish tones. Great bargain bubbly.
Good value for a sparkler. Lemon and apple tones. Very dry and drinkable. A great pairing with oysters.
Light floral nose. Delicate yeast, buscuit and dried petals. Tart dry finish of gooseberries and quince. Very good value. Worked well as a Kir Royale style cocktail with Domaine de Canton's ginger liquor
Good value. Very dry and has many citrus tones.
Good for the dollars... Dry, clean, and easy to drink. Plus Scharffenberger is fun to say. No? Buy this instead of Korbel.
External Reviews for Scharffenberger Champagne Blend Mendocino County Brut
A delightfully racy sparkler, with tart apple and floral anise aromas leading to zesty lime and lemon flavors, presenting accents of cinnamon and spicy ginger. Drink now.
This lovely Mendocino sparkler, crafted from two-thirds Chardonnay and one-third Pinot Noir, has lilting apple and honey aromas buoyed by a thick head of mousse. There is a pleasing follow-through from aroma to flavor and a core of ripe apple. Dry, soft with a long finish, this is a hard-to-resist food-friendly wine ready to pair widely.
Okay, I’m not a huge fan of the retro label (a replica of the original 1981 label), but I sure do love the yeasty, traditional style of the wine, so I guess I’ll let it slide! Bold and doughy, with apple, canned pear and lemon notes. Food pairing: Asian, seafood, spicy foods, poultry Flavor type: fruit-forward Body type: light-medium Finish: crisp
Here’s a polished, elegant wine, very dry, with delicate flavors of citrus rind, bread dough and yeast, toast and vanilla. It has a lightness and charm on the palate that make it irresistible.
Light, bright gold. Green apple and quinine on the citrus-accented nose. Very dry and nervy on the palate, which offers taut lemon and orchard fruit flavors and a hint of bitter herbs. Slightly pinched on the finish but there's good focus and cut here. This bubbly has a low 2.95 pH, which no doubt contributes to its racy character.
Distinctive for its baked pear, orange zest and spice notes with crisp apple and lemon flavors blended nicely, adding richness on the finish. Drink now.
