2015 Beringer Napa Valley Chardonnay
When one thinks of white wine in the Napa Valley, Chardonnay is the immediate varietal that pops into mind and almost always the star of the show. What I love about Chardonnay, is like Cabernet, you can taste 10 of them glass-to-glass and have 10 very distinct flavor profiles and tasting experiences. The 2015 Beringer Napa Valley Chardonnay displays a bright lemon peel color in the glass, aromas of pineapple, Caribbean fruits and buttery biscuit. On the tongue is a really nice, brighter feeling that makes this wine a good companion with many types of food. I would imagine this with a hot buffalo chicken dip, jalapeno poppers or a spicy Thai dish. The flavors of nectarine, brown sugar and creamy bread pudding are well blended and lead to a bright and airy finish.
