SCHARFFENBERGER BRUT EXCELLENCE, ANDERSON VALLEY CALIFORNIA
This is one of my favorite Sparkling wine made by the people from Roederer Champagne house!!Scharffenberger has been pioneering super premium Mendocino California sparkling wine since 1981, with grapes sourced from Scharffenberger's own 120 acres of vineyards, as well as select vineyards belonging to trusted growers in Mendocino County. Grapes grown in Mendocino County—an unmatched appellation for sparkling wine—benefit from the cool coastal influences of the Pacific Ocean. This type of vineyard selection allows us to produce our trademark cuvée.Scharffenberger grapes also enjoy the deep soils and sunshine provided by the protected Anderson Valley. The winery stays true to its original winemaking philosophy, to create stellar quality, delicious sparkling wines that reflect the diversity of the premier Mendocino County viticultural appellation.After approximately two years on the lees, there are notes of freshly baked bread and pastry that enhances the more fruit forward style of the wine. Finally, after several months on the cork, the wine develops caramel and hazel complexors.
