Very interesting white wine that I see compared to Caymus Conundrum but they are very different. Conundrum goes for fruit & lightness whereas Alluvium goes for complexity & depth. The nose is complex. Some oilyness, some mint, some linen ... lots of things. Flavor is initially dominated by the Viognier but then more things appear. Not for everyone but a very, very, very interesting wine.
One of the best white wines i have ever had. Great creaminess with a nice finish for a white. My first Semillion.
Medium body bordeaux type blend. Not as full bodied as I was expecting and is more bordeaux like than California. Soft tannins with sour cherry and smokiness. Needs time to open up.
Tasted at UNLVino 4/10/10
The Alluvium pours beautifully....rich almost viscous. The honeysuckle aroma from the Viognier wafts from the glass followed by pear, and citrus. Swirling the glass, the wine clings to the bowl forshadowing the viscocity and lush mouth feel. Peach and stone fruit, pear, vanilla; all linger with a long finish. Fabulous for a $15.00 wine.

There is not a better value in California dry whites than Beringer's 2006 Alluvium Blanc. This blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, and a dollop of Chardonnay, and even Viognier in certain vintages, is a distinctive, dry, medium to full-bodied white revealing notes of lemon grass, honeysuckle, nectarines, and waxy figs. It will be compatible with an assortment of foods. Drink it over the next 1-2 years, although it may last longer.
Beringer's twist on white Bordeaux, this Semillon and Sauvignon blend adds small amounts of Chard and Viognier to produce a tremendously invigorating white wine. Barrel fermented and aged on the lees, it's rich and exotic in custardy pineapple, fig, peach, apple, wildflower and vanilla spice flavors that finish with great length. Crisp and dry.
Pale yellow. Aromas of lemon pith and curd complicated by smoke and a whiff of char. Supple and ripe, but with good cut and focus to the citrus and spice flavors. Finishes persistent and fruity. The lees of the wine's semillon (40%) and sauvignon blanc (50%) components are stirred every other week until April.
The excellent 2007 Alluvium Blanc, their white Bordeaux-like blend, is a superb value. Steely, honeyed citrus (grapefruit and lemon) notes as well as admirable fruit, medium body, and good minerality are present in this fresh, crisp white. This would be a sensational accompaniment to an assortment of cuisines, including the spiciest, most torrid Asian cooking. Beringer continues to turn out an impressive array of wines, proving that a gigantic global operation can be focused on quality and character.
With the two main varietals of Semillion and Sauvignon Blanc the acidity keeps the lush fruit flavors of tropical fruit, floral, and lemon-verbana aromas.
