Fruit from two of the sacred California Chardonnay vineyards, Hyde and Hudson, unite in this cult favorite. The winery explaines it this way, “the Hudson vines provide the extravagant richness and the peach pit and almond aromatic intensity. The Hyde vineyard contributes to the mineral depth of the wine and the super high tones in the aroma.” The philosophy at the winery is to do as little in the cellar as possible; let the fruit speak for itself. Popular descriptors for Kongsgaard include “honeysuckle”, “minerality”, “pineapple”, “granny smith”, “toasted almonds”. This is the upper echelon of Napa Chardonnay.
