KISTLER 2013 CHARDONNAY SONOMA MOUNTAIN 750mL

Kistler produces one of the more coveted Chardonnays out of California! Their single-vineyard wines receive lofty scores from the critics, and easily command prices in excess of $100.00 to $200.00 per bottle. However, we secured a small allocation of their Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay, which offers many the flavors of the single-vineyard Chardonnays, but at a more affordable price!

The Kistler plantings on Sonoma Mountain, situated on a hillside bench perfectly suited for growing world class Chardonnay, are interlaced with the rare combination of red volcanic and fine grained chalky soils. These are east facing terraced vineyards, shadowed from the afternoon sun by giant redwoods. This is a remarkable marriage of site and orientation to the cooler trendings of the valley below. They are some of the oldest Chardonnay vineyards in Sonoma County.

This wine is tremendously complex, straw/gold colored wine that really does run the entire gamut. It starts off with Burgundian with intense aromas of green apple and sea spray, flavors of flint and citrus, and is structured by vibrant acidity. As the wine opens, it becomes more and more Californian, with notes of roasted almonds, pineapple, lemon bar, marshmallow, toasted oak, and butter notes. Big, lavish, full-bodied, and mouth-watering, there is a reason why Kistler Chardonnays are requested every day of the year...and this is a GREAT representation of their house style.
