Beringer Vineyards White Zinfandel-Chardonnaypremier Vineyard Selection 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"This pretty wine has a balanced, bright fruitiness that coats your mouth and carries through to the back with a crispness that ties everything together. I always think of the wine when I order Chinese take-out or when we cook barbecued ribs on the grill at home. Its mellow fruity flavors complement spicy dishes so well." - Ed Sbragia, Winemaster

  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

This is drier-styled White Zin that has a refreshing edge along with tons of fruit and a nice sweetness.
