Kongsgaard Chardonnay Napa Valley 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"This vineyard gives the wine its dense, minerally core andextravagant honeyed aroma. Small amounts of wine made from twodistinguished Carneros vineyards, Hudson and Hyde, are included in theblend, bringing stone fruit and citrus high-notes to the wine. Like TheJudge, the Napa Valley Chardonnay is allowed to ferment in new Frenchbarrels without any human intervention other than the weekly stirringby hand no yeast, no bacteria, no fining, no filtration."

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

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 07 (from the same Napa vineyard from which the Judge is made, plus Hyde and Hudson fruit) Pale yellow. Lemon drop, pineapple and crushed stone aromas lifted by herbal and floral highlights. Juicy,... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2005 Kongsgaard Chardonnay 750ml
