Description: "If the Kistler Winery could be magically transported to the middle of Burgundy's Cote d'Or, it would quickly gain a reputation as glorious as any producer of Burgundy grand crus." -Robert Parker
McCrea Vineyard was first produced from that particular site since 1988. The vineyard is located on volcanic mineral and limestone. This site produces one of their more elegant wines, Chablis like in its markings of white flower and lime blossom with a chalk driven core of fruit.
Kistler Vineyards is a small, family and privately owned winey that has produced some of the finest examples of terroir-driven Chardonnays from the new world consistently for over 30 years.
