The Beringer Founders' Estate Chardonnay is the perfect combination of pear, apple and ripe tropical fruit flavors, with a hint of citrus and a classically round mouthfeel. This Chardonnay will perfectly compliment a grilled chicken or fish, or stand up to a rich risotto with its ripe, clean flavors and lingering finish.
The Beringer winemaking team worked with the viticulture department to determine when each vineyard reached full maturity. Once fully ripened and picked, a majority of the fruit underwent fermentation in stainless steel tanks to retain the purity of fruit. A small percentage of the grapes were aged in seasoned French, Hungarian and American oak to add to the wine's depth of flavor and lush mouthfeel.
