From the use of natural yeast & modest oaking, extended
sur lee aging and bottling without filtration and fining,
John Kongsgaards wine making style favors minimal intervention.
The resulting wine has great varietal integrity, flavor intensity,
complexity and structure -an expression of the grape rather
than the ego of the winemaker.
Dark straw color with rich aromas of melons, pear,
honey and toasty oak. The palate is full bodied with lots
of fruit, oak and acidity. Genny’s Vineyard displays
great balance and depth.
