Beringer Private Reserve 2015 Chardonnay

Each Chardonnay lot was kept separate throughout the aging process. After sending the fruit directly to press, the juice is fermented in French oak barrels (66 percent new) to enhance the natural richness in the wine. Weekly lees stirring enhanced the toasty notes and integrated the oak flavors for an overall balance. All of the wine was put through malolactic fermentation to encourage a lush creaminess. After nine months aging, the most expressive lots are chosen and blended to create a richly layered wine with aromas of crème brûlée and rich citrus and fruit flavors.

Vinous / Antonio Galloni:  “The 2015 Chardonnay Private Reserve presents all of the notes that are so typical of this wine. Butter, tropical fruit, vanillin and sweet French oak are all pushed forward. Ample, creamy and expressive, the 2015 is a prototypical California barrel fermented Chardonnay.” 92 Pts

Wine Spectator: “Beautifully crafted, rich and layered, with tiers of smoky oak, buttery fig and tangerine, showing touches of fig and melon. Adds up to a delightfully lingering aftertaste. Drink now through 2020.” 92 Pts.
