    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2009 Alluvium Blanc is predominantly Sauvignon Blanc (48%) and Semillon (48%) with small amounts of Chardonnay (3%) and Viognier (1%). Laurie barrel fermented the blend for 9 months in French Nevers oak, almost half of which were new. The nutty, toasty aromas and flavors lent by the oak give a lush backdrop for its bright, refreshing citrus flavors. The majority of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation (96%), lending a creaminess to the overall blend that balances the crisp acidity of the Sauvignon Blanc.

    Knights Valley is a vineyard that Beringer has a rich history with, and one that consistently rewards me with wonderful fruit to work with. The flavors you get in the first Sauvignon Blanc grapes on the vine highlight the fresh, rustic elegance that sets this vineyard apart. Elegant floral and vanilla bean aromas give way to flavors of citrus zest and warm brioche. The 2009 Blanc strikes a wonderful balance between rich body and bright, enticing flavors.
