Kistler Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard 2008, 750mL (WA96, ST95) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Kistler Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2008
Region: US
Appellation: Carneros

WA96, ST95
Rated 96 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The stunning 2008 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard reveals an intense bouquet of tropical fruits, white currants, white peaches, pineapple and citrus oil followed by a full-bodied white that lives up to its exquisite aromatics. It should drink beautifully for 7-8 years.` -- Robert Parker in the Wine AdvocateAdditional Notes from the Wine Advocate: Not only have the 2008s lived up to or exceeded their potential from last year`s barrel tastings, the 2009s appear to be fabulous as well. Of course, 2008 was a much more challenging vintage and 2009 was a cool year, much like 2005, with slightly lower alcohols and higher yields than the short crop of 2008. All of the 2009 Chardonnays finished with around 14+% alcohol levels and had more minerality than usual. Kistler`s bottled 2008s were all concentrated. The 2008 Chardonnays have the potential to last even longer than the 2009s given the fact that they are even more concentrated than those wines.`
