Beringer Vineyards Chardonnay Private Reserve 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

Beringer's northernmost Chardonnay vineyards, Gamble Ranch and YountvilleVineyard, are located near the town of Yountville, where daytime temperaturesslowly climb as the cooling morning fog recedes south to San Pablo Bay. Thissignificant diurnal shift allows the grapes to maintain their acidity, which is essentialto balancing the ripe, rich flavors they develop during warm afternoons.

Beringer Vineyards:

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.

  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

Everything one could expect from a Napa Valley Chardonnay. Full bodied, buttery, oak and round.
