Beringer White Zinfandel Chardonnay 2013
This California Collection wines are carefully hand-crafted to deliver the outstanding quality and rich flavors that are hallmarks of the Beringer winemaking team.This collection offers a wonderful array of smooth and refreshing wines with a youthful exuberance that is appealing to anyone looking for an easy-drinking wine to pair well with a variety of foods.
Beringer’s winemakers highlight Zinfandel’s characteristically bright, fruity characteristics to create a light, refreshing blush wine. Immediately following gentle destemming and crushing, the must (pulp, juice and skins) is quickly chilled to preserve its fresh strawberry, raspberry and orange peel aromas and flavors. Just as a slight rose hue develops, the juice is pressed off the skins and fermented at carefully controlled, cool temperatures. To impart a slightly creamy texture and round out the vibrant berry and citrus flavors with notes of pear, apple and nutmeg spice, Beringer’s winemakers blend in approximately twenty-percent barrel-fermented Chardonnay.
