Almond nougat and dried orange peel aromas greet the nose followed by rich, smoky honeycomb notes and the spice of toasty oak. There’s a pop of tangerine on entry and this is downright flannelly on the palate, showing tremendous richness and creamy, honeyed pineapple and guava flavors on the short finish. A bit of a powerhouse, but this is more dense than huge. A bit soft for me, nonetheless well made in its style. 91 points

Stony on the nose, with a hint of dry stem notes topped with cider apple and pear peel aromas. Linear on the palate, though this does shows some richness in the mouth with early lemon flavors followed by a nice touch of stony astringency, as well with a hint of peach. This is moderately big with a fruit-driven finish that shows off lovely lemon and almost under-ripe pineapple. Dry and deep, this shows lovely richness wrapped around a fine acidic spine. 88 points

The Beringer Founders' Estate Chardonnay is the perfect combination of pear, apple and ripe tropical fruit flavors, with a hint of citrus and a classically round mouthfeel. This Chardonnay will perfectly compliment a grilled chicken or fish, or stand up to a rich risotto with its ripe, clean flavors and lingering finish. - Winery ** SOLD OUT **

The growing season began with a slightly delayed budbreak after quite a bit of Winter and Spring rain. Summer was moderately warm, with the exception of a slightly hotter July that helped speed the growth of the vines. Mild weather continued through much of harvest, allowing for consistent and deliberate ripening of the grapes. Harvest was excellent overall and provided grapes of great quantity and quality.

Ripe, with fine intensity to the green pear, vanilla and eucalyptus flavors. Bright lemon-lime tones linger on the tart, slightly cedary finish.

Bright medium yellow. Complex inviting nose melds stone fruits musky lees flowers spices and a truffley gamey quality. Silky rich and seamless but with excellent mid-palate energy to the ripe stone fruit and vanillin oak flavors. Fills the mouth without any impression of heaviness thanks to the racy acidity of the year. Finishes with building stone fruits and lingering notes of spices and flowers. Not at all a honeyed style of chardonnay. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

Goldgelbe Farbe, Aromen die an reife Birnen, Äpfel, Mango, Ananas und andere exotische Früchte erinnern. Am Gaumen frisch, fruchtig, komplex, ausgeglichen, Vanille- und Karamelaromen, im Abgang leicht würzig.
