Beringer Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley Founders' Estate 2007

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Just what you want in a clean, pleasant, everyday wine that won't break the bank. It's citrusy and fruity, with a nice cut of green-grass aromas and flavors. Drinks dry and clean.

  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

Round citrus and melon flavors are balanced with light herbal notes for fresh flavor and a smooth texture that marries well with intense foods such as Southwestern and Asian cuisine.

'The 2006 Sauvignon Blanc has wonderful grapefruit, guava and melon aromas that lead into citrus and melon flavors. There's a slight grassy backnote with a hint of honey and a balanced acidity that leads into to a citrus finish.' -- Laurie Hook, Winemake

Beringer's FE line does a good job of producing clean, varietally correct wines at fair prices. This white wine is sprightly and ripe with juicy citrus, fig, melon and vanilla flavors. It's a bit sweet, but has good acidity for balance.
