Wine Review: This golden straw-colored Chardonnay from Beringer opens with a refreshing ripe melon and lime bouquet that includes hints of vanilla and herbs. It is medium to full bodied and smooth with balanced acidity. The flavor profile is a ripe cantaloupe, clementine and a slightly tart lemon peel blend. It also included hints of minerality, vanilla oak and is slightly buttery. It concludes with a pleasant extended finish that fades away pleasantly. I would pair this food friendly Chardonnay with chicken picatta with pasta. – Joe

Winemaker Notes: Beringer's Napa Valley Chardonnay is a vibrant, contemporary version of this much-loved varietal, crafted to serve well as an aperitif on its own or as a faithful companion to a wide variety of foods and menus. Surprisingly plush and creamy, aromas and flavors of tart citrus lead with hints of white pear, delicious apple and a bit of lemon meringue and toasted almonds. Balanced, with moderate acidity, the brightness of the Chardonnay fruit shines through.
