The Kongsgaard Napa Valley 2016 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. It hales from their 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. This continues to be one of the best Chardonnays coming out of California today.
