Schramsberg Vineyards Cremant Demi-Sec 2007

Schramsberg Vineyards Cremant Demi-Sec 750ML 2007    
Sku: 16493

In 1965, Jack and Jamie Davies established Schramsberg on property originally owned by Jacob Schram, setting out to make world class sparkling wine to rival the prestige and quality of French Champagne. Their son Hugh now manages the estate, which is located in Napa Valley's Diamond Mountain District, totaling 220 acres with 50 acres under vine. Its historic caves, which cover 30,000 square feet, were dug in the 1880s. Schramsberg produces limited quantities of traditionally hand crafted sparkling wines from grapes grown in many cool climate vineyards throughout the North Coast. They are unique among California sparkling wine houses in that they barrel ferment 25% of their juice to produce rich, flavorful, complex wines. A world class winery and recognized leader in the California wine industry, Schramsberg produces America's finest sparkling wines which have been served proudly at state functions at the White House and abroad for decades.

Wine maker notes

We made California`s first Cremant in 1972. After rigorous study we chose the unusual California grape named Flora (a cross of Semillon and Gewurztraminer developed at U.C. Davis) to be the core component of this cuvee. This grape unites the fruit forward character of Gewurztraminer with the strength and depth of Semillon. We age the Cremant on the yeast for about three years, which adds complexity, yet allows it to retain its attractive youthfulness.
