2006 Kongsgaard, Chardonnay, US

It should be noted that this note covers one single glass and not tasted under mint circumstances

What went wrong here? Admitted – US Chardonnay is not something I am that eager about, but Kongsgaard has still made me smile the few times I have tasted it. This 2006 is however plain and simple awful – it has a synthetic nose of over the top fruit, with caramel associations, tacky evening perfume and a huge load of vanilla – almost like a melted huba buba chewing gum. Taste is burning hot with alcohol – no grip, no mineralty and very little acidity. Better luck next time.

This TN is from memory – no notes written.
