Scharffenberger "Brut Excellence" Mendocino County Brut Sparkling Wine

SKU #1011906 90 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark A fresh new release from Scharffenberger, Roederer Estate’s sister winery in Anderson Valley, this feels clean and sunny, with green melon, raw almond and green tea notes that last. It’s refreshing and comfortably balanced, the best wine from Scharffenberger we’ve tasted in many years. Inner quote mark (8/2019)

90 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Vibrant and steely, with lemon, apple, creamy and toasted spice flavors, leading to a spirited finish. (TF) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark The current edition of Scharffenberg’s Brut Excellence is a lively, well-bubbled offering that smacks lightly of apples and cream, and, although not a wine that shows the kind of yeasty richness born of protracted age, it teases with an appealing touch of evident autolysis all the same. It is, all in all, a nicely balanced, carefully crafted wine that goes straight to the Champenoise point without bombast or drama, and it joins its pink partner reviewed just above in delivering altogether exceptional value. *Good Value* Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Dry and crisp, this light-bodied wine offers tangy lemon and green-apple flavors, subtle baking-spice accents, refreshing acidity and an appetizing stream of fine bubbles. (JG) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

Not far from Roederer is a little homegrown brand: Scharffenberger. Established in 1981, the winery has gone through a couple of ownership changes (remember Pacific Echo? Me neither). Under the current ownership quality from this 120-acre property has shot to new heights. In contrast to the Roederer, the NV Scharffenberger Brut sees 100% malolactic fermentation. The wine is comprised of 2/3s Pinot Noir and 1/3 Chardonnay. There is a fruity richness with hints of plum, roasted apples and cinnamon.
