Beringer Luminus Chardonnay 2014

Beringer Luminus Chardonnay 2014

SKU 43387


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. Laurie has always admired the Chardonnay from our Big Ranch Vineyard for its elegance and balance. The 2012 vintage marks the debut of this distinctive wine.

Wine EnthusiastThere's an honest suggestion of bacon and eggs at first in this wine, which follows with a tangy entry that sizzles on the palate. Full, luscious and honeyed in oak, it's a powerful expression that's also balanced between fruit and nuance.

Wine SpectatorElegantly proportioned, with an array of light cedary oak, ripe pear, citrus and honeydew flavors, ending with a raw touch of anise and orange blossom. Drink now. 8,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateOnly 20% new French oak was used for just nine months in the 2014 Chardonnay Luminus from the cool Oak Knoll section of southern Napa Valley. This wine focuses on floral and citrus oil notes, medium body and delicate wood. Drink it over the next year or so.
