Kistler McCrea Vineyard Chardonnay 2013
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 SpectatorA lively, vibrant mix of citrus, ginger, ginger snap, pear, melon and green fig flavors, this maintains a deft balance and offers depth and nuance on the finish. Drink now. 2,110 cases made.
