KISTLER Chardonnay, Vine Hill Vineyard 2017

The Vine Hill Vineyard is located north of Sebastopol and the vineyard that surrounds the winery. Kistler has bottled this Chardonnay since 1991, and the latest release is absolutely magical. This fascinating Chardonnay opens with a complex aromatic display of ripe lemon, tangerine, green apple and key lime, along with nuances of honey, tropical fruits, toasted brioche, flint and hits of fresh herbs that all take shape. On the palate this is utterly striking, with racy acidity on the front end transitioning into a beautiful tight, focused finish that explodes with flavors of citrus, orchard fruits and fresh mineral. This absolutely stunning Chardonnay is layered, complex and simply brilliant. Hard to resist now, but time will only benefit this beautiful wine.
