2002 GENNY'S VINEYARD
Chardonnay

Winemaking Information
From the use of natural yeast & modest oaking, extended sur lee aging and bottling without filtration and fining, John Kongsgaard’s 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.

Tasting Notes
Continuing in a long line of big, complex Chardonnays, The 2002 Genny's Vineyard is rich and multi-layered. From its initial aromas of ripe pineapple, papaya and hazelnut to its lingering flavors of pineapple and ripe melon, this wine fairly bursts with character. The intense richness is counterbalanced by a bright natural acidity and the spicy nuances of oak.
