To achieve the perfect color in their White Merlot, Beringer’s winemaking
team gently destems and presses the Merlot grapes, leaving the red
skins in contact with the juice for approximately three hours. As soon as
the desired soft, red-purple hue is achieved, the juice is removed. Slow,
cool fermentations follow to retain the bright acidity, fresh melon and
citrus flavors. The resulting wine is a vibrant blend of fresh berry and
zesty orange peel flavors, with a hint of nutmeg spice.
