  • Introduction

    • THE WINERY: Mirabelle is Schramsberg’s multi-vintage brut sparkling wine. Twenty years into building an outstanding range of vintage dated sparkling wines, the Davies family set out to master the non-vintage or “multi-vintage” traditional method technique. A few years of experimentation would ultimately lead to the successful launch of Mirabelle Brut and Mirabelle Brut Rosé in 1992.

      THE WINE: Mirabelle is Schramsberg’s multi-vintage brut sparkling wine, a style the winery initiated in the 1990’s. Mirabelle Brut is a young, bright bubbly which features crisp acidity and vibrant green apple and citrus fruit from cool-climate Chardonnay, as well as body, mid-palate and richness of fruit flavor from Pinot Noir. Jamie Davies named the wine Mirabelle from the Latin word Mirabilis meaning “wonderous beauty.”

  • Tasting Notes

    • “This Mirabelle Brut presents a medley of aromas, including orange zest, yellow apple, and seared grapefruit, which are intertwined with notes of lemon custard, sugar cookie, marzipan, and vanilla. On the palate, a bright entry of Meyer lemon and tangerine leads to a generous and juicy midpalate of key lime and candied apple, all leading to great length on the finish.”
      — Winemakers Sean Thompson, Jessica Koga and Hugh Davies
