Scharffenberger Brut Excellence
|California, North Coast, Mendocino
The wine is approximately two-thirds Chardonnay and one-third Pinot Noir. The full malolactic style adds a vanilla cream character producing a round and full-bodied wine. 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.
Soft and fresh, with easygoing flavors of creamy lemon, spice and fresh yeast rolls. Drink now. 35,600 cases made.
