Schramsberg Cremant Demi-Sec 2013
Winemaker Notes :
Wine EnthusiastThis off-dry sparkling is made from 78% Flora, 13% Pinot Noir and 9% Chardonnay. It works in its inviting, rich array of stone-fruit and tropical accents, met by a floral underbelly of inviting aroma. Creamy, voluptuous and well-made, it'll pair well with spicy dishes and is perfectly refreshing and delightful on its own.
Wine SpectatorLush and creamy, yet balanced, with lively acidity, this offers vibrant lemon and orange sorbet flavors, with spice accents.
Wine AdvocateComposed of 78% Flora variety (a Gewüztraminer and Sémillon crossing), 13% Pinot Noir and 9% Chardonnay, the 2013 Cremant Demi-Sec has a peaches and pear-laced nose with a creamy/baking bread undercurrent and a touch of ginger. The palate has some phenolic grip with the elevated dosage countering nicely, balanced by plenty of freshness and soft bubbles, finishing on a spicy note.
