“Meritage” – white wines – Brief Article – Statistical Data Included

Philip E. Hiaring

The “meritage” wine category is an interesting one. Beringer has what it calls “Alluvium Blanc” as a white table wine in this category. I don’t know if Beringer belongs to the Meritage Association or not, but proprietary names such as Alluvium have been around for a long time. The wine ($16) is a blend of Semillon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon blanc and Viognier. It’s an interesting and complex wine, no doubt about it. The Sauvignon and Semillon, by the way, account for about 90% of the blend. The wine should be outstanding with oysters on the half shell, or fresh cold-cracked crab. 3/2000.
