Kistler McCrea Vineyard Chardonnay 1997
Wine AdvocateThe 1997 Chardonnay McCrea Vineyard, made from an old Wente clone, personifies this varietal's lemony, buttery, citrusy, mineral style. It offers medium to full body, splendid concentration, considerable richness and texture on the mid-palate, and gorgeous elegance, purity, and overall balance. Tangy acidity gives the wine admirable freshness. It should age well for 5-7 years.
Wine SpectatorSmooth, rich and smoky, with layers of tangerine, pear, fig, hazelnut and honey. Gains richness and depth, turning thick and concentrated on the finish.
