    Winemaker's Notes:

    Stylistically, Mirabelle Brut resembles some of its French cousins with its elegant, toasty aroma which leads into crisp and complex flavors on the palate. It is impossible to mistake Mirabelle's Northern California heritage - the freshness mid-palate continues through to the finish. Mirabelle Brut is a unique blend of hand-harvested bunches of Napa, Sonoma and Mendocino county Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Mirabelle pairs well with shellfish, light appetizers or hearty, vegetable-based soups.

    The non-vintage Mirabelle combines the bright, vibrant fruit of the 2002 vintage with the equally dynamic wines of vintages past. Complete with a green apple and jasmine fragrance, filled out by tropical fruit notes, the aromas merrily greet you from the glass. The bright citrus entry on the palate gives way to subtle honey and caramel, with just a hint of fresh cream to balance the zesty acid. Mirabelle, as ever, demonstrates the illustrious combination of yesterday and today, with age enhancing youth and freshness complimenting the more complex characters.

    "Big, buttery aromas of baked apple, lemon curd, nutmeg, malt and bread dough. A whiff of buttered toast leads to balanced flavors of citrus, white flowers and butterscotch. Citrusy, nutty finish refuses to fade."
    -Wine News

    Hugh Davies, President and Winemaker of Schramsberg, is devoted to carrying on his parent's vision: to create America's premier sparkling wines. Our winemaker's passion for constant refinement of vineyard sources and winemaking techniques is captured in each bottle. The resulting refinements to our original vision are evident each year in our new releases. We invite you to share in this American tradition by enjoying our proudly crafted sparkling wines.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The non-vintage Mirabelle Brut white is sourced from Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino and Marin County and is made from 60% Chardonnay and 40% Pinot Noir. The blend of young and older wines gives it a creamy richness, with lots of ripe peach and honeyed brioche, backed up by a medium-bodied, crisp, fresh, pure, dry sparkling wine that offers well-defined, small bubbles. This is a beauty to drink over the next few years.

    This was very good but not great. A smooth flowery taste that lacks the distinctive zest of other superior bruts. add on note: I had a second bottle and was more impressed. This one had zest so five stars it is!

    I don't drink champagne often, but when I do it better be good. This was one of my favorites.

    The quality and care that went into making this sparkling comes through with every sip. I prefer the pink, but this is still spectacular. I've had it with extravagant dinners and I've had it with nothing but good company. You can't go wrong with this sparkling. It's absolutely perfect. Not too fruity or yeasty, just the right balance of the proper components. That's hard to find in the $25-30 price category.
