Beringer Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley Founders' Estate 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 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.

  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

Tangy and ripe, with fine concentration to lime peel, fig and green apple flavors. Grapefruit and vanilla notes shape the finish.

Beringer Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of citrus rind, grapefruit and a slight floral character. This wine is full of ripe citrus and white peach flavors, with a refreshing minerality throughout. The bright citrus flavors carry into the finish, making this a charming and approachable wine from the first sip to the last.

Beringer Founders Estate Sauvignon Blanc shows bright fruit characteristics with a wonderfully refreshing grape fruit flavor that is enhanced with intense citrus, ripe stone fruit and white fig. The wine finishes with a clean grassy note and crisp acidity making it a perfect match with grilled fish.

Intense grapefruit, peach, citrus and tangerine flavors, with a zingy mouthwatering acidity and persistence on the finish. Drink now.

A sharp touch of citrus cuts the unctuous texture of this wine, a full-bodied sauvignon for roast white meats.

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.
