Why we love this wine:

Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs 2014 is a great go-to bubbly for any occasion.

Delicious, lemony-fresh, and dry, this sparkling wine carries a bouquet of green apples, crisp citrus notes, and a rich foam of bubbles. On the palate, it's medium-bodied and bright, with flavours of pineapple and green apples. Its tart finish is perfect for classic pairings like seared tuna or fresh oysters. Yum!

Winemaker / tasting notes:

The 2014 Schramsbert Blanc de Blancs has bright and fresh aromas of green apple, apricot and orange blossom. The fruitful fragrance intermingles with hints of honey, and lemon zest. Freshly sliced peaches, pear and bright pineapple flavours carry vibrant length on the palate. While this wine can be enjoyed by itself as an aperitif, it is also perfect with fresh oysters, crab cakes, ceviche and grilled sea bass.

Blanc de Blancs (white from white), made from Chardonnay, is the counterpart to the Blanc de Noirs (white from black), made from Pinot Noir. Blanc de Blancs was the first wine Schramsberg produced in 1965 and was America’s first commercially produced Chardonnay-based brut sparkling wine. Schramsberg Blanc de Blancs gained international recognition in 1972 when then President Nixon served the wine at the historic "Toast to Peace" in Beijing, China.

The Schramsberg style of Blanc de Blancs is dry and crisp. Small lots of malolactic- and barrel-fermented wines are added for complexity. The wine is aged on the yeast lees in the bottle for over two years prior to disgorgement. With its vibrant, fruitful and crisp nature, this sparkling wine will maintain its freshness, structure and refined finish for many years, even decades following its initial release.
