2012 Beringer Napa Valley Chardonnay

Beringer-Napa-Valley-ChardonnayBeringer’s Napa Valley Chardonnay is a vibrant expression of this beautiful varietal and the depth and complexity of flavor it can exhibit. Winemaker Laurie Hook chooses complementary lots from AVAs in the cool southern end of the valley to craft a wine that is the quintessential expression of Napa Valley terroir. 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 blend comes from our Big Ranch and Yountville vineyards, located on the valley floor. These vineyards produce Chardonnays with fine fruit flavors and crisp natural acidity.

From the winemaker – “Refreshing, crisp citrus notes accentuate this lively Chardonnay. A medium, rounded mouthfeel is highlighted with flavors of lemon meringue and a pleasing acidity.”

2012 Luke Donald Chardonnay

Luke-Donald-ChardonnayBorn and raised in England, professional golfer Luke Donald has an affinity for the great white Burgundies of France. This is the inspiration behind his Luke Donald Collection Carneros Chardonnay, a wine that reflects Luke’s passion for elegant, well-balanced Chardonnay. Luke Donald Collection wines have their origin in a longstanding friendship between top ranked pro golfer Luke Donald and fine wine professional Bill Terlato. Whether on the golf course of in the vineyard, both men share a similar passion for excellence. Luke plays an active role in crafting his wines; his personal involvement in the blending makes the wines original, unique and an expression of his own personality and style.

From the winemaker – Wonderful aromatic profile of pear, citrus blossom and a hint of caramel. Balanced acidity and great minerality. This wine has a long, bright finish with notes of vanilla, layered with pear, honey and a hint of caramel.”

This wine is best served with grilled or saute’ed pork chops, pork tenderloin, grilled or saute’ed veal, veal marsala, scallopine or roasted veal.

2014 Stags Leap Napa Valley Chardonnay

The fruit is hand-picked and whole cluster pressed. In order to preserve the minerality, fresh acidity and clean fruit characteristics, this vintage did not undergo malolactic fermentation. A portion of the wine (25%) has been fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the purity of the fruit while adding layers of taste and complexity. The wine was aged on the lees in French oak (25% new) for six months, and stirred weekly during maturation.

From the winemaker – “Aromas of lemon zest, tart white peach and crisp pear show generously in this refreshing cool-climate Chardonnay. On the palate, vibrant citrus fruit intensity is balanced by a wet stone core and nutty undertones. Focused, yet generous in style, the wine has notable acidity that maintains freshness and lasting lemon minerality that adds complexity.”

This wine pairs nicely with rich seafood dishes, roast chicken or pasta with cream sauce.

Cupcake Red Velvet is a blend of 47% Zinfandel, 29% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon, and 5% Petite Sirah grapes, each variety contributing to the structure, aroma, depth of flavor, and finish.

From the Wine Maker – “Red Velvet shows an incredible nose of chocolate, deep rich blackberries, red fruits and a creamy mocha finish that is unmistakable in its intensity and length. Our Red Velvet is a blend of Zinfandel, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. It’s reminiscent of a blackberry chocolate cupcake with a mocha coulis.”

Enjoy with sweet and spicy Hoison steak, a barbecue bacon cheese burger or even dark chocolate fondue.
