Beringer Vineyards Luminus Oak Knoll District Chardonnay 2015

$34.99

93 Points Parker - New release       Inaugural release of a beautiful new Chardonnay from Beringer. Robert Parker:  "Beringer’s 2015 Chardonnay Luminus shows a touch of new oak, but this is meant to highlight the ripe tropical fruit of California’s Chardonnay. This wine displays tangerine and pineapple along with hints of pear, crème brûlée and citrus blossom. Medium-bodied with crisp acidity, it should drink nicely for another 3-4 years."

Gorgeous, supple and elegant. Pears and dry apricot. Just utterly delicious. A great wine by the glass from Porto, a snazzy new seafood restaurant in Boston.

Notes of pear and apple with lemon and oak. Nice acidity. Not buttery as no malolactic fermentation.

Pears, melon, and a little white peach, with light oak, a little butter, and moderate soft acidity. Nothing jumps out front with this wine and it’s very well balanced. It was good with a roasted salmon dinner.

Citrus, pear, lime, sea breeze intertwined with tropical fruits make a very attractive and refreshing nose. Textured and polished yet light on its feet. Oak is noticeable but very restrained. Another honest, good effort by Beringer.

Rich in qualities that I enjoy in a Chardonnay. Melon and grapefruit rest on a foundation of toasted butter on the nose. The wine is well rounded as it rests into the palate with beautiful balance and floral/spice notes.

Just the right amount of buttery and oaky taste for a hot summer day.
