Schramsberg 2012 Brut Rosé
76% Pinot Noir, 24% Chardonnay | Alc: 13% Smooth + Dry
North Coast, California
Schramsberg 2012 Brut Rosé has generous aromas of mixed red berries, orange blossom, and white peach. Its fruitful nose is complemented by notes of shortcake and cream. The palate bursts with flavors of raspberry sorbet, lemon custard, and summer apricot. The wine has a fresh and juicy acidity which drives to a supple, round finish.
“Another big-time winner, and one of their larger cuvees of just over 9,000 cases is the 2012 Brut Rose. This is a blend of 76% Pinot Noir and 24% Chardonnay, of which 33% was barrel fermented. This wine is ripe, broad, savory, shows tiny bubbles, comes across fresh with kirsch-like aromatics and flavors. It’s dry, medium-bodied, zesty and exuberant. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.” 94 Pts -The Wine Advocate
“Plush, with floral strawberry and brioche aromas and rich, layered flavors of blood orange, gingerbread and almond.” 92 Pts – Wine Spectator
