    Winemaker's Notes:

    Scharffenberger Rosé is made by the traditional méthode champenoise process, whereby the wines are individually bottle-fermented before being riddled and disgorged. Most of the base wines underwent malolactic fermentation, which softens and rounds out the blend. The grapes are sourced from our vineyards in the Anderson Valley as well as other premium quality vineyards in Mendocino County with whom we have long term contracts. This type of vineyard selection allows us to choose from the best vineyards in the area, which enables us to produce our trademark cuvée.

    The wine has a pale salmon hue with integrated aromas of fresh raspberry jam and wild strawberries on a cream covered pastry base. The flavors are layered, round, fresh, fruity and long.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This nonvintage 54% Pinot Noir, 46% Chardonnay sparkler is as good as ever, a beautiful peach color with peach and strawberry aromas and flavors that are not too overpowering, not too subtle, just right. The creamy mousse, medium body and bright acidity make it a stunner with food. Bring on the goat cheese fritters or tempura.

    Sleek, with pinpoint focus, this offers raspberry and butter cookie aromas, with crisp, elegant citrus and cherry flavors marked by ginger and spice.

    A great sparkling wine if you're hosting a party. Not the most sophisticated, and the bubbles have a limited life; but the pink color is festive, the wine is well balanced, and you can't beat the price point.

    A lovely sparkler from Mendocino. We opened for our pre Thanksgiving toast and loved it for its balance and fruit. Not too dry with nice bubbles and a beautiful hue.
