The Luminus has a striking purity of fruit, and showcases bright citrus characteristics and a beautiful minerality. It has a robust acidity, notes of lemon pith, almond extract, and a silky, elegant texture.

Critical Acclaim

Wilfred Wong of - "You have just got to love the Oak Knoll District of the Napa Valley, for decades I have been a super fan of the chardonnays from this part of southern Napa. The 2013 Beringer Luminus is a single vineyard star (from the winery's Big Ranch Vineyard). Full of core fruits, cream and mineral, this wine has so much to offer. Drinks well now, but will most certainly gain from aging in the bottle. (Tasted: April 13, 2015, San Francisco, CA)"

The Wine Advocate - "The outstanding 2013 Chardonnay Luminus comes from the Oak Knoll sector of southern Napa Valley. About 25% new oak is used in this cuvée, and it is made from the newer Burgundian clones of Chardonnay as opposed to the Old Wente selection (which actually came from Burgundy many decades ago). This wine exhibits pineapple, poached pear, honeysuckle and buttery melon notes in addition to a subtle use of wood, and a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel. Consume this beauty over the next 4-5 years. "
