商品説明

無類のローヌワイン好きであるロバート・パーカー氏も「北ローヌの最上エルミタージュを彷彿とさせる」と称賛する、コングスガードのラインナップの中でも毎年驚異的な得点を獲得するシラー。

ナパ・ヴァレーのカーネロスを代表する銘醸畑、ハドソン・ヴィンヤードのシラーから造られます。ジョン・コングスガード氏は畑を所有するリー・ハドソン氏とデイヴィス大学時代からの長い付き合いであり、畑の中でも最上の区画のブドウを購入し、このキュヴェを造り始めました。

冷たいサンパブロ湾からの霧と冷気の影響により密度の高い果実味を備えたブドウを新樽比率50% のフレンチオークにて熟成させた後、無ろ過・無清澄にて瓶詰めを行います。造られるワインはスパイシーなアロマが心地良く、凝縮した果実味と緻密なタンニンが織り成すリッチな味わい。

The 2012 Syrah is a compelling example of this varietal. It is 100% Syrah, but it smells as if it includes a large quantity of Viognier. Huge notes of flowers, honeysuckle and lavender jump from the glass of this dense purple-colored wine along with notes of scorched earth, charcoal, smoked meats and a touch of steak tartar. A wine of great intensity and magnificent concentration, it could easily achieve perfection in a few years. Drink now through 2026.
The mystical John Kongsgaard came out of the Newton winemaking factory where he was mentored by the great Michel Rolland. However, he has had his own operation for many years in the cool Coombsville hills east of the town of Napa. He also uses purchased fruit from some of Napa’s finest growers, particularly the Hudson Vineyard. His estate includes six acres on Atlas Peak and six acres in Coombsville, and he is in the process of clearing another tract for planting. Although his total acreage is small, the wines are artisanal, individualistic and filled with personality and flavor. Anyone who believes Kongsgaard wines are too alcoholic or rich is missing out on some of the world’s most pleasure-filled and complex elixirs.
The Chardonnays include a basic cuvee, which comes from selected parcels John Kongsgaard has long worked with in the Hudson and Hyde vineyards (from Old Wente clonal materials). There is also an estate Chardonnay, the riveting, prodigious The Judge named after Kongsgaard’s father. It comes from a six-acre parcel planted in 1975 in Coombsville that never yields more than ten tons of fruit. It is Old Wente clone material, which old-timers claim, but can’t prove, came from Burgundy’s grand cru Corton-Charlemagne. With two great vintages (2012 and 2013) in the pipeline, and with 2014 looking superb at the time of my visit, Kongsgaard is overflowing with liquid treasures.
