Beringer Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley 2010
External Reviews for Beringer Vineyards Chardonnay Napa Valley
One of the best buys in the Chardonnay marketplace remains Beringerrsquo;s 2009 Chardonnay Napa. In fact, I would rank it right up there with Kendall-Jacksonrsquo;s 2009 Vintnerrsquo;s Reserve. Beringerrsquo;s offering shows elegant white peach and honeysuckle notes in a crisp, medium-bodied style. What is surprising is how much flavor and intensity they have been able to build into this wine, which probably can be found discounted to $12 a bottle.
The 2010 Chardonnay offers good up-front fruit and an accessible, easygoing personality. Layers of tropical fruit, smoke and licorice wrap around the finish. About 60% of the wine was allowed to go through malolactic fermentation. Anticipated maturity: 2011andndash;2013.
Pale bright yellow. Peach and flowers on the nose. Round and peachy, with sound acidity and a refreshing hint of licorice. Slightly phenolic, edgy finish. Sixty percent of this wine went through malolactic fermentation.

Pale bright yellow. Pure aromas of musky nectarine, grapefruit and pineapple. Boasts good thickness and richness for a chardonnay in this price range; the dominant characteristic is lively stone fruit flavors. Finishes with good length. Only 35% of this wine went through malolactic fermentation, and the wine got only 25% new oak aging.
