Refreshing, crisp citrus notes accentuate this lively Chardonnay. A medium, rounded mouthfeel is highlighted with flavors of lemon merengue and balanced acidity. Beringer'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.

Wine EnthusiastThis is a generous and ripe version of the variety, reflective of warmer Napa Valley sites, and a wine that's completely delicious in its abundance of apple and caramel.

Wine AdvocateThe style of Chardonnay at Beringer seems to have backed off the overt oakiness that was favored for so many years. The new breed of Chardonnay from Beringer is much crisper, with restrained oak and more citrus than butter. For example, the 2012 Chardonnay Napa is fermented in both stainless steel and barrel, has good, lofty alcohol at 14.5%, but shows plenty of lemon zest, honeyed grapefruit, tangerine and white currants. It is crisp, elegant, medium-bodied and best drunk over the next several years.
