Food Pairings for Kongsgaard Wines Syrah Napa Valley
Napa Valley Syrah the result of a very gratifying viticultural relationship with the exceptional Carneros grower, Lee Hudson. Hudson has 2.7 acres of volcanic soil (unusual in the Carneros) committed to Syrah, which bear fruit of unique intensity when thinned to one cluster per shoot. Harvested with mature, silky tannins, the wine is fermented and macerated in 120-gallon puncheons for full extraction of the white pepper, violets, and dark chocolate character typical of the noble Syrah. After evolving for two years in French oak barrels (50% new) and only two rackings, the Syrah is bottled without filtration or fining. The wine is expected to evolve in the bottle for decades.
