2012 Schramsberg “J. Schram” Brut Reserve (California, US)

Varietal: 86% Chardonnay, 14% Pinot Noir

The original American sparkling wine house! Schramsberg Vineyards was originally established in 1862 by German immigrant Jacob Schram, with a focus on making Champagne-style sparkling wine in California. The 2012 Reserve is absolutely stunning, rivalling the best sparkling wines of the world. Aromas of caramelized pineapple, dried orange peel, and brioche are backed up by flavors of lemon curd, honey, and fresh bread on the palate.
