91pts Antonio Galloni's Vinous
The lovely citrus in the Beringer Luminus Chardonnay is perfect for a fluke crudo drizzled with fresh lime juice and flaky sea salt. Follow that with salmon cakes with a mango salsa and you've got yourself a winning combination. The pert acidity of this Napa Chardonnay will go nicely opposite a pasta primavera dish with a light cream sauce too. For a casual dinner or lunch, make it chicken salad with toasted macadamias on a bed of Boston lettuce. Or, get your curry on with a big platter of chicken makhani; it's mild and buttery and just right for this Luminus. 

Antonio Galloni's Vinous:  "The 2018 Chardonnay Luminous is a very pretty, understated wine. Light tropical notes, butter, mint, orchard fruit and lemon confit give the 2018 an attractive exotic flair, and yet it remains pretty and very much medium in body. This is an especially brisk style. Drinking window: 2020-2025."  Jan 2020

Winery:  "Meaning “light” in Latin, Luminus naturally represents the radiance of this Chardonnay. Like the brightness and purity that the name conjures, Chardonnay from the Oak Knoll district is known for its uncommon focus. The Chardonnay fruit from the Big Ranch Vineyard is known for its elegance and balance and Chief Winemaker Mark Beringer has always gravitated towards this acid-driven, food-friendly style of Chardonnay."
