Kongsgaard Chardonnay Napa Valley 2001
CHARDONNAY NAPA VALLEY is grown primarily on the shy-bearing Kongsgaard family vineyard described above. This vineyard gives the wine its dense, minerally core and extravagant honeyed aroma. Small amounts of wine made from two distinguished Carneros vineyards, Hudson and Hyde, are included in the blend, bringing stone fruit and citrus high-notes to the wine. Like The Judge, the Napa Valley Chardonnay is allowed to ferment in new French barrels without any human intervention other than the weekly stirring by hand – no yeast, no bacteria, no fining, no filtration.
