Green-tinged pale yellow. Pungent, truffley, Burgundian nose featuring aromas of citrus peel, hazelnut, and minerals. Perfectly integrated acids keep the wine lively and sharply focused, while its soil-driven flavors and sulfide-y complexity add to the wine's immediate appeal. Delicious now.

Wine AdvocateA new offering from Steve Kistler is the 2005 Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard, a Sonoma Coast site located close to the Durell Vineyard. This classic 2005 displays a solid core of intense, concentrated fruit, medium to full body, and high acid, which provides superb freshness and buttresses the wine’s super intensity and richness. It possesses abundant mineral, white citrus, and orange blossom characteristics as well as beautiful purity. Kistler Vineyards, undeniably one of the world’s finest winemaking estates, is run with passionate dedication to detail and quality by Steve Kistler and Mark Bixler. It is wines like these that keep an old critic like me inspired and energized.
