More Vintages and Sizes of Kongsgaard - Chardonnay:
International Wine Cellar
Author: Stephen Tanzer
Issue: Issue 144
($75; bottled in June of 2008) More exotic and more tropical on the nose than the 2007, hinting at butterscotch and honeyed high tones. Fat and sweet, but with a slightly bitter edge to its honeyed flavor. Less fleshy and fruity than the 2007, and currently conveying less minerality too. Not showing the fruit it displayed from barrel a year ago: is this in a dumb stage?

The 2006 Chardonnay reveals brawny orange marmalade, white peach, and popcorn notes with notions of oak and damp earth in the background. Drink it over the next several years as I am suspect of the aging potential of these Chardonnays.

Full body of ripe peach and papaya flavors, hints of cinnamon, pear - exotic rather than classic. Heavy on the finish, yet lively and cleansing. Light gold rich color and a nose of vanilla bean. Definitely an attention grabber. Cheers!
