Medium body bordeaux type blend. Not as full bodied as I was expecting and is more bordeaux like than California. Soft tannins with sour cherry and smokiness. Needs time to open up.

The Alluvium pours beautifully....rich almost viscous. The honeysuckle aroma from the Viognier wafts from the glass followed by pear, and citrus. Swirling the glass, the wine clings to the bowl forshadowing the viscocity and lush mouth feel. Peach and stone fruit, pear, vanilla; all linger with a long finish. Fabulous for a $15.00 wine.

    This is a very nice California Bordeaux blend, including semillon (and even a little chardonnay!) which adds so much to the ubiquitous sauvignon blanc. Racy, somewhat light up front, it morphs into a delicious buttery finish which lasts up to 30 seconds. This is more flavorful and more complex than any of the actual Bordeaux whites in it's price range- a great value. Great with New England clam chowder.

    Plush and generous, with fine richness and depth to candied fig, melon, beeswax and dried hay flavors. Tangy quince and marshmallow-scented oak lingers on the finish. Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Viognier. Drink now.

    Offers wonderful purity of fruit, with a rich, vibrant beam of tangerine, nectarine and subtle pear shadings. Finishes with a long, clean aftertaste, which shows a hint of sage. Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier. Drink now through 2011.

    Beringer's twist on white Bordeaux, this Semillon and Sauvignon blend adds small amounts of Chard and Viognier to produce a tremendously invigorating white wine. Barrel fermented and aged on the lees, it's rich and exotic in custardy pineapple, fig, peach, apple, wildflower and vanilla spice flavors that finish with great length. Crisp and dry.

    There is not a better value in California dry whites than Beringer's 2006 Alluvium Blanc. This blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and a dollop of Chardonnay, and even Viognier in certain vintages, is a distinctive, dry, medium to full-bodied white revealing notes of lemon grass, honeysuckle, nectarines, and waxy figs. It will be compatible with an assortment of foods. Drink it over the next 1-2 years, although it may last longer.

    A bracing acidity and tart citrus, orange peel and peach flavors are pleasantly balanced with spice and campfire smoke nuances on a sleek frame, with a long finish. Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Chardonnay and Viognier. Drink now through 2013.

    Pale yellow. Aromas of lemon pith and curd complicated by smoke and a whiff of char. Supple and ripe, but with good cut and focus to the citrus and spice flavors. Finishes persistent and fruity. The lees of the wine's semillon (40%) and sauvignon blanc (50%) components are stirred every other week until April.

    The excellent 2007 Alluvium Blanc, their white Bordeaux-like blend, is a superb value. Steely, honeyed citrus (grapefruit and lemon) notes as well as admirable fruit, medium body, and good minerality are present in this fresh, crisp white. This would be a sensational accompaniment to an assortment of cuisines, including the spiciest, most torrid Asian cooking. Beringer continues to turn out an impressive array of wines, proving that a gigantic global operation can be focused on quality and character.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar Review Flowers and oak spices on the nose. Rounder than the Stanly Ranch bottling but less precise, with more wood influence showing. Finishes with modest persistence. Most of the barrel-fermented portion of this wine (53%) went through malolactic fermentation. Wine Tasting Notes The number one Napa Valley Chardonnay, the Chardonnay is a combination of lemon zest, apple blossom, nutmeg, vanilla bean, butterscotch and slightly mineral aromas that lead into mouth coating citrus and apple flavors and a long citrus finish.
