Schramsberg Vineyards Mauzac Blend Napa Valley Crémant 2004
Notes on the Schramsberg Sparkling Cremant 2004 : WINEMAKER NOTES: "Aromas of honeyed spice, rum cake, rhubarb pie and baked pineapple commingled with wild pear, melon and tea leaves. The bouquet of mouth-watering fresh fruit blends harmoniously with the wine's more mature elements. On the palate, this wine is rich and creamy yet still vibrant and refreshing. -Winemakers Hugh Davies and Craig RoemerSCHRAMSBERG SPARKLING CREMANT 2004

Suggested Food Pairings. This delicious sparkler has spicy floral aromatics and apricot and peach flavors which will caramelize with further aging. The sweetness in Crmant is subtle providing a fine balance with desserts such as fruit tarts poached fruit light cakes custards exotic sorbets crme caramel gingerbread and crme brle. It also complements a wide range of spicy Asian foods and matches especially well with foie gras. 88% Flora 9% Chardonnay and 3% Gewurztraminer.
Schramsberg Cremant is a delicate off-dry, dessert-style wine: an American original. Cremant is French for "creamy" and traditionally refers to a sparkling wine with less pressure and softer effervescence. Our Cremant has roughly half the pressure of our other sparkling wines, it presents a creamier texture, and has more exotic flavors.
