Kongsgaard Kings Farm Red 2018

Napa Valley

From the winery: "The Kings Farm wines are the "little brothers and sisters" of the Kongsgaard wines and are bottled in small quantities that are offered only to our mailing list customers in the spring of each year. Kings Farm is the translation of Kongsgaard from the Norwegian. Our family name is tied to our ancestral farm in southern Norway. The image of a medieval Norwegian king on the label was painted in the year 1225 in the Torpo stave church in Hallingdal near the family farm." The mystical John Kongsgaard is one heck of a winemaker. These are low tech, artisinal offerings that eschew commercial yeasts, bacterial strains, and enzymes. Of course, they are bottled naturally, with no fining or filtration. What one gets is the essence of the varietal, vintage, and vineyard.

The Winery

Kongsgaard is a cult California wine producer widely renowned for making richly textured yet elegant Chardonnays, which are among the very best in California. The wines have received numerous accolades from critics, including Robert Parker who gave the 2013 vintage of The Judge 100 points, calling it "certainly one of the greatest Chardonnays I have ever tasted".

John Kongsgaard is one of the most lauded winemakers in the US, having previously made wine for Newton, Luna and Arietta. He makes numerous other highly rated wines, including a Napa Valley Chardonnay from Carneros fruit, a Cabernet Sauvignon – Merlot blend called Fimasaurus, a Hudson Vineyard Syrah and an Albariño.

The Kings Farm (the translation of Kongsgaard) range are the "little brothers and sisters" of the main brand. These wines are made in small quantities and initially only available to mailing-list customers. - Information from Wine Searcher
