KONGSGAARD 2017 Napa Valley Chardonnay
96+ pts Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “Coming from the Hudson and Hyde vineyards, the barrel sample of 2017 Chardonnay opens with notes of lemon drops, lime cordial and fresh grapefruit with hints of fresh ginger, toasted almonds, honeysuckle and mandarin peel. Full-bodied and super tight-knit with amazing freshness and layers of densely packed citrus flavors, the finish is epically long and a zesty. Wow.”
Chardonnay 2017 Kongsgaard Napa Valley hails from the unique blocks of the Hudson and Hyde vineyards in the Napa Carneros that have been ours since we began in 1996. The 2017 is superbly energetic and balances acidity, fruit, and minerality at levels of concentration we find awe-inspiring. A significant aspect of the Kongsgaard Chardonnay signature develops in the second year of barrel aging on the lees. This technique, which John imported from Burgundy long ago, sculpts the dazzling finish, which those familiar with Meursault will admire. The Wine Advocate agrees, noting “amazing freshness and layers of densely packed citrus flavors; the finish is epically long and zesty. Wow.” 1604 cases produced.
