"Appealing raspberry and cinnamon aromas lead to friendly cherry, apple and spice flavors in this crisp rosé. Drink now. 12,300 cases made." (WS)

"Even better is the non-vintage Mirabelle Brut Rose, which is 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir sourced from the same areas, although here more comes from Marin and Mendocino than Napa, while Sonoma is also included in the mix. This dry rose has a lovely light salmon color, a big, sweet kiss of strawberries, and touches of raspberries and currants. The wine is medium-bodied and very frothy, with well-defined bubbles, and good intensity, dryness and finish. A beauty as well as a terrific value, it should be drunk over the next 1-2 years.

From the renowned, iconic Schramsberg, these are their lowest-level sparklers, and they are both exceptional values." (WA)

Winery Notes:
The partner to Schramsberg’s Mirabelle Brut, the Mirabelle Brut Rosé is a specially crafted blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Schramsberg’s select cool-climate vineyards in the Carneros, Anderson Valley, and Sonoma and Marin coastal areas of Northern California.

The grapes are picked by hand and gently pressed to provide superior quality juice for the production of this balanced, refreshing rosé bubbly. In the spring following the fall harvest, base wines are individually evaluated and carefully blended by Schramsberg’s winemakers. Pinot Noir lots, including a few fermented with skin contact, provide bright berry fruit and body, while Chardonnay lots lend length and zest to the palate. Additional flavor depth and aromatic complexity result from the blending of base wine lots aged in barrels and tanks for one or more years. The wine undergoes secondary fermentation in the bottle and rests in Schramsberg’s historic Diamond Mountain caves for approximately two years. Following the en tirage aging, an extensive dosage trial process produces the ideal finishing touch, and the sparkling wine is ready to be enjoyed. The finished Brut Rosé exhibits fresh, elegant and toasty aromas that lead into lively and delicious fruit flavors on the palate.

The multi-vintage Mirabelle Rosé is delicious on its own, and it also pairs well with everything from to grilled salmon, country fried chicken, BBQ pork ribs, Caprese salad, poke tuna, classic Hawaiian pizza or simple pastas.

Tasting Notes:
The Mirabelle Rosé has generous aromas of strawberry, guava, ruby grapefruit, cherries and candied orange. The taste is complementary to the nose, with flavors of ripe red cherry, juicy orange and lemon zest. The palate is concentrated and flavorful, with a creamy richness and a lively, lingering acidity. Keith Hock and Hugh Davies, Winemakers
