Beringer Vineyards Beringer Napa Valley Vineyards Chardonnay 2011
External Reviews for Beringer Vineyards Beringer Napa Valley Vineyards Chardonnay
Beringer’s 2011 Chardonnay impresses for its balance and harmony. Another wine that punches above its weight, the Chardonnay is laced with bright citrus and floral notes, all in a focused, vibrant style that is incredibly appealing. The partial malo style gives the wine plenty of depth, while not overwhelming the sheer vibrancy of the aromas and flavors. This is another terrific value. Anticipated maturity: 2012–2014.
A solid effort, with direct green apple, pear, spice and light floral and herbal touches, ending with a clean, refreshing finish. Drink now through 2016.
Bright, light yellow. Soft citrus, lemon and yellow peach aromas and flavors are complicated by spicy oak. Nicely rich, pliant and fruit-driven, with a touch of sweetness and an almost glyceral mouth feel. Sexy oak spices complement but do not overwhelm the smooth, varietally expressive chardonnay fruit. Finishes smooth and persistent. Admirable entry-level chardonnay, and an excellent value.
Lighter than many Chards at this price point, the Beringer Napa is more elegant and almost French in style. Perfectly balanced and versatile, this will highlight a range of chicken, pasta or rice dishes.
