The 2015 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard is stellar. In this range, the Kistler Vineyard Chardonnay is distinguished by its bright aromatics, lift and nuance, all of which confer a great deal of freshness. This hillside site, with its myriad exposures, volcanic ash soils and a mix of Wente and Mount Eden clone Chardonnay on St. George rootstock yields Chardonnays of unparallelled class and distinction. This is a dazzling wine from Kistler. (AG)
Bottled in December 2016. The original vineyard planted in 1979 by Steve Kistler and Mark Bixler at about 600m elevation in the Mayacamas mountains, just half a mile from the Napa County line. The clonal material is mostly from Mount Eden vineyard. 17,040 bottles filled. Deep greenish gold. Powerful aroma of ripe green fruits with really bright, fresh expression. Very focused and linear. Super pure and a little bit reminiscent of an Arnaud Ente wine but with an extra layer of ripeness and sunshine. Really rich palate entry with the tiniest hint of popcorn. Very firm finish. Nothing sweet and simple about this. 18/20 points.
