Wine Tasting NotesWhite peach, fig tart, nectarine, clove, and vanilla aromas lead into a palate that is framed by bright, juicy, tangerine-like acidity. Rich citrus and stone fruit flavors follow through into a nice finish.
Beringer has set a standard for the California style of Chardonnay. The wonderfully exotic flavors in this wine are a terrific match for food.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar ReviewFlowers 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 NotesThe 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.
