Beringer Alluvium White '06 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wholecluster pressed to enhance delicacy and aged partially in French oak barrels for a round rich texture and partially in stainless steel to retain the pure varietal character of our Napa Valley vineyards Notes of apple pear citrus spice and a touch of toasty oak and mineral character lead to a long finish

  It is impossible to take Beringer’s long history lightly. With their 215 acre plot of land purchased in 1875 and the winery founded in 1876, Jacob and Frederick Beringer’s winery is the oldest continually operating winery in Napa Valley. In 2001, it was named a historic district in the National Register for Historic Places. Current winemaker Laurie Hook and winemaster Ed Sbragia continue to draw from over a dozen vineyards to create world-class wines from varying soil compositions and climates. The winery managed to survive, and even thrive, during Prohibition by selling sacramental wines with a federal license. Since the wine was being made for religious purposes, it was legal! A unique aspect of Beringer is the tunnel system that was carved into the side of Spring Mountain around 1880. Chinese immigrant workers, the same workers that helped build the Trans-Continental Railroad, spent years hand-chiseling the 1,200 feet of tunnels. To this day, the tunnels act as a natural insulator, keeping the temperature between 58 and 60 degrees year-round, ideal for storing wine. Read less

Very interesting white wine that I see compared to Caymus Conundrum but they are very different. Conundrum goes for fruit & lightness whereas Alluvium goes for complexity & depth. The nose is complex. Some oilyness, some mint, some linen ... lots of things. Flavor is initially dominated by the Viognier but then more things appear. Not for everyone but a very, very, very interesting wine.
