Cellar for up to 12 years. Serve chilled.

Schramsberg has a reputation for making exceptional sparkling wines thanks to this sensational bubbly which was first made in 1965. At the time it was the first dry sparkling wine made from Chardonnay to be sold in the US. The Blanc de Blancs became even more famous in 1972 when it was served by President Nixon at the “Toast to Peace” dinner held in Beijing.

To create this sparkling wine Schramsberg uses small lots of wines that have been fermented in oak barrels to add extra complexity and a rich, creamy texture. The wine then undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle, the same process used to make Champagne in France, and is left to mature on the lees for two years before disgorging.

This long ageing period helps to create a refined and graceful sparkling wine with plenty of tiny bubbles, hints of toast and vanilla spice, and a medium body. On the palate there are ample notes of bright lime, grapefruit, green apple and apricot unlaid with honeysuckle, ginger and honey. The complex yet refreshing flavour profile make this a great wine to serve as an aperitif or to enjoy with everything from oysters and ceviche to spicy Thai curries, grilled sea bass, or roast chicken.
