"Sleek and layered, offering vanilla and Meyer lemon tart aromas and supple citrus flavors, with hints of caramel and anise. Drink now. 20,550 cases made." (WS)

"Perhaps the finest portfolio of Schramsberg sparkling wines I have tasted to date, these beauties include the outstanding, frothy 2007 Blanc de Blancs (100% Chardonnay), which reveals notes of brioche, white currants and lemon blossoms. Medium-bodied with persistent effervescence and excellent acidity, it should drink nicely for several years or more. (I do not believe in aging these sparkling wines.)" (WA)

Winery Notes:
The aromas are sweet and inviting with fresh lemon and lime, followed by pineapple and ‘Jolly Rancher’ green apple. The generous nose is accentuated by a salty minerality that leads way to the yeastiness of fresh from the oven bread. Upon first taste, the 2007 Blanc de Blancs delivers delicious flavors of green apple, fresh honeydew melon and lemon custard. The palate finishes with a pleasant acidity that is crisp, long and lingering. -Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
