Kistler Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay 2000
Wine SpectatorUltrarich, almost syrupy, with a gorgeous core of ripe, buttery pear, honey, pineapple and citrus flavors that are amazingly well-focused, finishing with a tight beam of flavor that zings across the palate, enlivened by juicy acidty. Drink now through 2007. 538 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThere are 550 cases of the smoky, hazelnut, tropical fruit-scented and flavored, medium to full-bodied, crisp 2000 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard. An interesting white peach characteristic emerges from this exotic, fruit-driven effort. It possesses the requisite backbone and acidity for 5-6 years of aging.
