Kistler Chardonnay is barrel fermented in our subterranean, gravel floor barrel rooms, and is aged sur lie in those same barrels, remaining for eleven to eighteen months until bottling. Produced since 1988. Located on the eastern flank of Sonoma Mountain where redwoods still thrive in a very rare for the area mix of Sonoma volcanics and limestone. Produces one of our more elegant wines, Chablis like in its markings of white flowers and lime blossom with a chalk driven subtle, ethereal core of fruit.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Chardonnay McCrea Vineyard, a Sonoma Mountain cuvée, shows loads of crushed-rock minerality, lemon oil, apple blossom and brioche in a medium to full-bodied style. Drink it over the next 4-6 years.
