Winemaker Notes

The 2003 vintage provided one of the wettest springs on record, affording a beneficially long and cool growing season. Early season heat spikes got the vines growing and the season evolved nicely with warm days and cool nights. The grapes developed beautifully with delicious fruit flavors and elevated acidity.

A gorgeous depth of fruit greets the nose: lemon-lime, pineapple, baked pear and orange marmalade. Fresh sourdough, vanilla crème brûlée and toasted marshmallow notes follow. A crisp and zippy entry on the palate gives way to a viscous, caramelized apple and citrus profile. This rich sparkling wine finishes with a delicate minerality, a hint of warm roasted almonds and a lingering acidity.

Connoisseurs' Guide
Once again, Schramsberg's flagship bubbly winds up at the right end of the leaderboard. Its bold, complex blending of toast, caramel, yeast and crème brûlée takes it far beyond the realm of primary fruit, and yet, for all that the wine possesses, it succeeds because it has energetic, briskly focused fruit at its heart. With its creamy mousse of small bubbles and its rich, developed flavors in the mouth, it is a wine to serve with a first course of a fois gras crème caramel or a finely crafted lobster mousse because nothing less decadent will bring out all that is on offer here.
WE 94
Wine Enthusiast
A beautiful, rich, elegant, fancy sparkling wine. Feels so fine in the mouth, all silk and satin, with deep, dry raspberry, strawberry, vanilla, toast, yeasty lees, brioche and honey flavors. Superb, but young. Needs time. Give it until 2011, if you can keep your hands off, and should develop until 2015, if not longer. Cellar Selection
WS 92
Wine Spectator
A beautiful bubbly, boldly styled but retaining elegance, with aromas of fresh brioche and apple and layered flavors of spicy hazelnut, yeast and baked pear.
