Beringer Vineyards Chardonnay Private Reserve 2013

Beringer Vineyards Chardonnay Private Reserve 2013

Sku: 034874

Beringerís northernmost Chardonnay vineyards, Gamble Ranch and Yountville Vineyard, are located near the town of Yountville, where daytime temperatures slowly climb as the cooling morning fog recedes south to San Pablo Bay. This significant diurnal shift allows the grapes to maintain their acidity, which is essential to balancing the ripe, rich flavors they develop during warm afternoons.

2009: 93 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: "The 2009 Chardonnay Private Reserve, which comes primarily from Napa's Gamble Ranch site, is a bigger, richer, more nutty-styled Chardonnay revealing tropical fruit, butter, brioche and hazelnut characteristics. They backed off the oak in this cuvee, which results in more fruit, interest and personality."

2009: 93 Points - James Laube, Wine Spectator: "A very classy wine that combines rich, layered, complex fruit with a sense of delicacy and finesse. Full-bodied, but not heavy, offering detailed fig, melon, apple and spice. What's most impressive is the texture and length, with the flavors continuing to develop. Drink now through 2015."

2009: 91 Points - Steve Tanzer, International Wine Cellars: "Bright, pale, green-tinged yellow. Precise aromas of stone fruits and wild herbs lifted by floral and rocky naunces. Broad, rich and nicely dry, with a hint of leesy complexity to the stone fruit flavors. Captivating minerality gives finesse to this attractive, plump wine."

Wine maker notes
ďGamble Ranch makes up the majority of Beringerís flagship Chardonnay this year, and it is a vineyard that consistently delivers rich, ripe fruit flavors. Aromas of sweet vanilla and lemon oil evolve into flavors of lemon custard and honeyed hazelnuts. The rich, luscious mouthfeel is perfectly balanced by bright citrus notes. This wine is a wonderful example of how complex and simultaneously charming Chardonnay can be. Crafting the Private Reserve Chardonnay is always a pleasure and Iím proud of how beautifully this wine showcases the Napa Valley terroir and vintage.Ē ĖLaurie Hook, Winemaker
