Kunde Sonoma Chardonnay 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Soft and round with a vibrant mix of fruit flavors, this elegantly styled Chardonnay lets its green apple and melon nuances play out on a gentle frame of toast and vanilla. The ripe fruit is highlighted by a subtle herb component that gives added complexity to its lengthy finish.

Crisp Granny Smith apple on the nose with some herbal green tones and asparagus. Th apple flavors are pleasant but the vegetal green tones in this wine are a distraction. Far too herbaceous. - Tasted at winery Feb 2011

Kunde is a family owned wine estate in Sonoma Valley that’s been around for about 100 years. All of its wines are estate bottled, produced from grapes grown in its own 1,850 acres of vineyards, which is very unique in this day and age. What else is unique about Kunde is their commitment to sustainable farming and environmentally beneficial practices throughout the winery. The state of California recognized Kunde Estate and awarded it the Governors Environmental and Economic Leadership Award. In a state known for leading the way on environmental initiatives, this is its highest environmental honor. But what really matters is that with all of this they make outstanding wines. This Chardonnay is partially barrel fermented and then aged 7 months in oak adding a spice and vanilla flavor dimension to the already complex pear and fig nuances.
