Beringer’s Chardonnay vineyards span several sub-appellations in southern Napa Valley, where fog from the San Pablo Bay works its way north most afternoons during the growing season, cooling the vineyards and allowing for a longer maturation period. The majority of the 2016 blend comes from our Gamble Ranch in Oakville, as well as Big Ranch and Los Carneros Stanly vineyards. These vineyards produce Chardonnays with layers of fine fruit flavors and crisp natural acidity.
Plush and creamy, aromas and flavors of tart citrus lead with hints of white pear, delicious apple and a bit of lemon meringue, caramel and toasted almonds. Balanced, with moderate acidity, the brightness of the Chardonnay fruit shines through.
