Kongsgaard Napa Valley Chardonnay offers an exalted combination of richness and focus. It comes on with a big blast of stone fruit and citrus zest and the high notes in the aroma lead you to a delirious array of flavors in the finish. Antonio Galloni called it "A wine of breadth and resonance…shaping up to be a jewel of a wine." It hales from Kongsgaard's long-standing Carneros growers Hudson and Hyde. Like The Judge, this Chardonnay spends 22 months in barrel before bottling and it has developed into a truly delicious mouthful.

Wine AdvocateA barrel sample, the 2016 Chardonnay has exuberant tropical fruit and honeysuckle scents plus savory/nut notes with hints of brioche, marzipan and ginger. Full-bodied and voluptuously fruited in the mouth, it offers tons of salted nut and savory layers with seamless freshness and fantastic length. It's worth noting that at this juncture, the wine was still on original lees and hadn't been racked at all, as per the old Burgundian way.
