Beringer Vineyards Chenin Blanc California 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Gentle handling and careful attention is given to the Chenin Blanc grapes from the vine to the glass. To retain the delicate varietal flavors of crisp citrus, melon, and spicy ginger, Beringer's winemakers chill the juices immediately following crush and continue to closely monitor the temperature throughout fermentation. Just before dryness, they cool the juices even further to halt fermentation and retain a smooth, lush mouthfeel and lingering finish.

Beringer Vineyards:
  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.

  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 light colored and bodied wine, fairly sweet and would be a good substitute for a Reisling in German cuisine or just sitting outside. This is a good wine to serve for people who have just started enjoying wine.

Very non-descript Chenin Blanc. Strong alcohol aftertaste. Not bad, but very plain.

Very sweet like a gv or reisling, but a little heavier then the other varietals. We've never seen a $4 gv, so this full 12.5% chenin blanc is well worth the $4.99 price point. Based on the price, will buy again (after chilling for an extensive period).

Sweet, fruity, but not cloying. Was good with light seafood pasta; would also be good on its own. For less than $10 (closer to $5), it's a great bargain.
