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
The Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay is planted1800 feet above sea level on the western edge of the Mayacama mountains. The red volcanic ash helps define the intense stone fruit, with a firm, lean feel on the mid-palate that settles into rich layers of complexity.
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.
