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
“Ripe, rich and buttery, with layers of spicy fig, peach pit and caramel notes from the toasty oak. Richness carries through the finish.” Wine Spectator 90 points
