Kongsgaard Chardonnay Napa Valley 1999

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

High-toned aromas of pineapple, butterscotch, roasted almond and vanilla, plus a whiff of wild herbs. Comes across as more penetrating and minerally than the young 2000, with less obvious sweetness and an impression of stronger acidity. But this soli... Stephen Tanzer.

Fifth-generation Napa natives John and Maggy Kongsgaard produce The Judge, Chardonnay, VioRous, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. Shy-bearing vineyards and traditional low-intervention winemaking techniques produce powerful, graceful wines — high intensity expressions of vineyard and variety. The core of their endeavor is the ten-acre vineyard they planted in the late 1970s on a rocky hilltop in southern Napa Valley which has belonged to the Kongsgaard family since the 1920s. In addition to these family acres, they direct the farming under long-term contract on another seven acres in the Napa Carneros and three acres near St. Helena. The winery, on the eastern rim of Napa Valley, is a cave drilled into the volcanic rock. Production is limited to what they can make with their own hands. Read less
