There is no faster way to get everybody to gather round than by popping open your first bottle and serving martini glasses brimming with dungeoness crab and avocado, topped with smoked onion vinaigrette. Make mine a double! Well, maybe if you serve it with a glass of this Beringer Napa Valley Chardonnay... You can splurge on the crab because of the awfully gentle price point of this wine. If you are able to tear yourselves away for an entree, rest assured that you have many options. Chicken, seafood, shellfish, and butter and cream sauces will cozy up to the pure, clean fruit flavors. The fruit and citrus notes of this Beringer white will be fantastic opposite a tangy rock shrimp salsa topping on sauteed salmon and a perfectly browned corn cake. Another choice for this Napa Chardonnay is grilled swordfish with a Sicilian sauce of golden raisins, parsley, pine nuts and fresh tomatoes. For those of you thinking ahead who prefer white wine with your turkey, stock up for the relatives and serve this addictively good Chardonnay with an herb-salted roast turkey with shallot-dijon gravy for Thanksgiving... After all the dishes are cleared, we suggest opening another bottle and serving it with a tart lemon meringue pie. It will bring all of the rich fruit flavors in the wine together, and make for a really big finish. Good night that's tasty!!
Winery: "Refreshing, crisp citrus notes accentuate this lively Chardonnay. A medium, rounded mouthfeel is highlighted with flavors of lemon meringue and a pleasing acidity.
Beringer’s Napa Valley Chardonnay is a vibrant expression of this beautiful varietal and the depth and complexity of flavor it can exhibit. Winemaker Laurie Hook chooses complementary lots from AVAs in the cool southern end of the valley to craft a wine that is the quintessential expression of Napa Valley terroir."
