Kistler’s 2013 Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard is decidedly more vertical in feel than many other wines in the range. Phenolic intensity plays off a set of bright aromas and flavors, which makes for a complete and intriguing wine. A long, extended finish only adds to the wine’s considerable appeal. The Stone Flat is a gorgeous, complete wine, but it also needs a year or two to be at its best. This is an especially strong showing for the Stone Flat. (AG)
Exhibits a bright, vivid, juicy mix of lemon, green pear, white peach and honeydew flavors, shaded by spicy, toasty oak. Deftly balanced, ending with minerality and a trace of savory herb. (JL)
More restrained, delicate and playing it closer to the vest is the 2013 Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard. This wine has a touch of tropical fruit, including mango and pineapple, good body and some gravel-like, stony minerality. (RP)
Tasted blind. Pale gold. Buttery nose. Richer, sweeter and fatter than most. Almost creamy coffee notes. Lots of alcohol and not quite as refreshing as some. Slightly bitter note on the end. For early drinking. Kistler? (JR) 17/20 points
