After a cool tour of their wine cave they gave Don a bottle of their Kongsgaard 2006 Chardonnay - which he brought home and we thoroughly enjoyed. The wine was fantastic. It was light, crisp and fruity, not oakey or buttery - which are my least favorite characteristics of Chardonnay.
They produce a limited number of bottles. So the only way to purchase the wine is through their wine club or in a restaurant. You can find a list of restaurants on their website.
There are websites that will help you locate hard to find wines. One is a website called Snooth. I found this description of the Chardonnay on their website. Stephen Tanzer gave it a 95 rating. Wow. It's definitely a special occasion wine in my world. Too bad we drank it on an ordinary Tuesday. Oh well. It was still delish, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
