Beringer Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley Founders' Estate 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

When you pick up the glass you notice a bright silver lime color and wonderful citrus, fig and vanilla aromas. This wine is a perfect example of our signature reductive style of employing less oak to preserve the brightness and zest of his varietal. It's the kind of wine you find yourself going back to, again and again, for another delicious and refreshing taste.

  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

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.

Blassgelbe Farbe mit grünen Reflexen, intensives an Grapefruit, Limetten und weissen Blüten erinnerndes Bukett. Am Gaumen lebhaft und doch mild, angenehm strukturiert, ausgeglichen mit frischem würzigem Abgang.
