Schramsberg Brut Rosé is fruitful, complex and dry, making it a versatile partner to food as well as delicious by itself as an apéritif. The character of the wine is predominately influenced by bright, flavourful Pinot Noir, some of which is fermented in contact with the skins to add depth and subtle colour to this vibrant sparkling wine. Chardonnay gives spice, structure and length on the palate. The finished blend is aged on the lees in the bottle for about two years, just enough to achieve refined effervescence and richness without diminishing its refreshing, vibrant appeal. It has generous aromas of candied orange, raspberry preserve, cranberry and orange blossom. Its fruitful nose is complemented by notes of vanilla, honey and brioche. On the palate, there are juicy flavours of peach, strawberry shortcake and lemon curd, with soft touches of marzipan. The wine has a fresh, juicy acidity which drives to a bright, clean finish.
