Winemaker's Notes:

With the two main varietals of Semillion and Sauvignon Blanc the acidity in the 2005 Alluvium Blanc keeps the lush fruit flavors of tropical fruit, floral, and lemon-verbana aromas.

"A wine that mimics a top white Graves is Beringer's 2005 Alluvium Blanc, a barrel-fermented blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon that represents terrific value. This honeyed effort possesses crisp acidity as well as loads of melon, fig, and waxy lanolin characteristics."
