We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

Chardonnay 2014 Kongsgaard Napa Valleyhas a profoundly intense aroma of citrus zest, peach, and minerals. Barrel fermented and aged for 20 months before bottling, it fills your mouth with a grand impression, balancing tannin with fruit and acidity. The flinty aroma we love in white Burgundy is unmistakable here. Galloni described it as "incredibly vivid and translucent," and Parker called it our "Batard Montrachet." This year we celebrate 20 years of collaboration with our exceptional Carneros farming partners, Lee Hudson and Larry Hyde, whose famous Wente clones have been the signature of our Napa Valley Chardonnay since our first vintage in 1996.

Wine AdvocateKongsgaard's speciality is Chardonnay, and he continues to excel, making some of the finest and longest-lived Chardonnays in California. The basic cuvée is his Bâtard-Montrachet of Napa. The 2014 Chardonnay offers wonderful minerality, with notes of apricot, white peach, honeysuckle and crushed rock, all coming from an old Wente clone with tiny, tiny yields. One of the last to put any SO2 in it, the 2014 may have been one of the finest Chardonnays I tasted on my second swing through Napa.
