Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs Premier 5lcrisp and Refreshing 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Schramsberg Blanc De Blancs Napa Valley 2000 3 Liter Bottle : WINEMAKER NOTES: The 2000 Blanc de Blanc boasts of the best of what Chardonnay has to offer- fruit, freshness and viscosity. Bright pineapple and juicy green apple aromas are enhanced by pastry and mascarpone notes. Vanilla spice and crème brulee round out the aroma profile and are also evident on the palate in flavor and full mouth feel. This creaminess complements the seamless acid backbone for which our cool-climate Chardonnays are known. Vivid tropical fruit flavors share the well-balanced palate with lemon meringue and orange zest, leading to a refreshing, lingering finish.SCHRAMSBERG BLANC DE BLANCS NAPA VALLEY 2000 3 LITER BOTTLE

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
