Wine Review: This rose gold colored Sparkling Wine from Schramsberg displays very tiny bubbles. It opens with a very mild pear and floral bouquet including hints roses, lilies and a touch of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is light bodied, lively and bright. The flavor profile is a tasty lemon-lime and golden delicious apple with notes of minerality. We also detected a hint of ginger. The finish is dry and subtle. The Panel suggested that this food friendly sparkler would pair well with roasted garlic chicken. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Fresh aromas of sweet red apple, pineapple and citrus blossom, are complemented by nuances of warm caramel and fresh sourdough. The palate is crisp and lively, with exotic flavors of guava and papaya, followed by Mandarin orange and Meyer lemon. The wine finishes with a tangy acidity that lingers in the mouth. Mirabelle Brut works well as a dry aperitif and is also well-suited as an accompaniment to a broad range of foods, including oysters on the half shell, sushi, baked halibut, cheeses and cream-based pasta dishes.
