Beringer Luminus Chardonnay 2019
We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oak Knoll|
Luminus features bright aromas of white flowers, star jasmine, honeysuckle and lemon zest. The captivating aromas lead to a flavorful and medium-bodied palate where white nectarine, essence of bergamot, lemon and lime notes mingle with creamy butterscotch and hazelnut nougat flavors. The judicious use of French oak lends a subtle nutty spice character. Bâttonage provides an unexpectedly plush mouthfeel, and bright acidity leaves a lingering, pleasant finish with hints of stone minerality.
Dried apricot, pineapple, lemon curd, crushed stones and some hay on the nose. It’s full-bodied and buttery with concentrated mineral and ripe-fruit layers. Some spice, too. Excellent length. Drink or hold.
The 2019 Chardonnay Luminus comes from the Oak Knoll District, which is a cooler region in the southern part of the valley. Brought up in 30% new French oak, it offers a beautiful bouquet of ripe Meyer lemons, white flowers, sappy herbs, and a touch of brioche. Nicely textured and medium-bodied, with both richness and freshness, this outstanding wine will keep for 2-4 years.
