    June 30, 2014 - This was not good - not as previus. All the good thinks was gone and instead a defected wine.

    March 25, 2014 - First off, when I set aside my wine tasting analytical side, I like this very much. It's intriguing, complex, and has a pleasant combination of flavors.

    Structurally, this wine is powerfully aromatic, dry, quite acidic, with a fairly balanced combination of fruit and mineral flavors. It has a long finish.

    I'm not big into the kind of descriptive tasting notes that describe favors flavors, mostly because I don't think I'm good at it. Even so, I would have a particularly hard time describing this wine. A little bit of oak, but not too much. A little bit of butter, but I would not call it a buttery chardonnay. I'd say it shows more like a big California chardonnay on the nose, but on the palate it is leaner, with some tropical fruit and anise flavors along with the aforementioned minerals.

    In sum, I like it very much.

    November 17, 2013 - We love the Kongsgaard Chardonnay. Butter , a bit of popcorn , mango and pineapple.
    The wood is there , but not as a bad think.
