Kistler Vine Hill Vineyard Chardonnay 2000
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine AdvocateKistler's 1990 Chardonnays represent the pinnacle of what this grape is capable of achieving in California. In contrast to the Dutton Ranch, the 1990 Vine Hill Road Chardonnay is more open and forward, with an intense, buttery, apple blossom, toasty-scented nose, and opulent, rich, and powerful flavors that possess enough acidity to provide delineation to the wine's personality. Drink this intense, concentrated, stylish, French-like Chardonnay over the next 3-4 years.
Wine SpectatorComplex and deep, with rich, ripe Chardonnay flavors framed by toasty, buttery oak notes. The ripe pear, apple, spice and melon flavors come through and linger on the finish. Elegant and stylish. Drink now. 760 cases made.
