Fruit-forward and smooth, these wines offer dependable taste for casual drinkers. Beringer’s California Collection is named for the ripe fruit flavors that characterize the wines as well as the bountiful and sunny state in which they originate. Vineyards The coordination between viticulture and winemaking teams is essential when choosing fruit, to achieve the optimum level of flavor and balance in the wine. The vineyards selected for the California Collection wines are bathed in warm sunshine the majority of the day, to yield the most ripe, sun-kissed fruit flavors in the grapes. Winemaking Notes Gentle handling and careful attention is given to the Chenin Blanc grapes from the vine to the glass. To retain the delicate varietal flavors, Beringer’s winemakers chill the juices immediately following crush and continue to closely monitor the temperature throughout fermentation. Just before dryness, they cool the juices even further to halt fermentation and retain a smooth, lush mouthfeel and lingering finish. Tasting Notes The California Collection Chenin Blanc is a well-balanced wine with aromas and flavors of crisp citrus, melon, and spicy ginger. It’s meant to be enjoyed with a variety of foods, from Asian and Mexican foods to a casual backyard barbecue with friends.
