Kongsgaard Chardonnay Napa Valley the Judge 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

If you are in search one of the most premier and sought after Chardonnay's in the state of California than this is right up your alley. Kongsgaard has been allocated since its inception and we were lucky enought to accquire a total of 3 bottles this year!!! <strong></strong> <strong>Kongsgaard The Judge Chardonnay 2007 Napa Valley</strong> gains its extraordinary power from the shy-bearing rocky site which Johnís grandfather originally intended to use for his stone quarry. The miniscule yield may account for the wineís intensity. At just over one ton per acre, it takes two vines to produce one bottle of wine. Robert Parker found it to ìpossess great substance as well as finesse. A liqueur of minerals, subtle, smoky hazelnuts, and full-bodied pineapple, orange blossom, quince, and mango flavors emerge from this stunning, well-textured, layered Chardonnay.î Steve Tanzer found the 2007 Judge ìSuave and seamless on entry, then dense and gripping in the middle, with superb intensity and lift to the flavors of lime zest and rocks.î The wine is named after Johnís late father who was the Judge in Napa County.

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
