Scharffenberger Brut Excellence is made by the traditional methode champenoise process, whereby the wines are individually bottle-fermented before being riddled and disgorged. Scharffenberger Brut Excellence is made from its own 120-acre vineyards in the Anderson Valley. In addition, Scharffenberger Cellars has long-term contracts with select vineyards in the greater Mendocino County. With this type of vineyard selection, it allows us to produce our trademark cuvee.
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.
