Kistler Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard 2007, 750mL (WA94-96, ST93) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Kistler Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard

750mL

Vintage: 2007
Region: US
Appellation: Russian River Valley, Sonoma County

WA94-96, ST93
Rated 94-96 points by Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The 2007 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard reminds me of a Corton-Charlemagne with its notes of white peach, unbuttered popcorn, honeysuckle, and that liqueur of crushed rocks. This dry-farmed vineyard planted with old Wente and Mt. Eden clones (the preferred choice of Steve Kistler and his sidekick Mark Bixler) has produced a full-bodied, powerful, mineral-dominated wine with great acidity and a long finish. With almost a tannic structure superimposed on the enormous fruit, this wine should drink well for at least a decade.`The relatively cool growing season for 2007 Chardonnays produced tightly knit wines with very crisp acid profiles, superb concentration because of modest yields, and relatively long aging potential of probably up to a decade for most of these Chardonnays. If the scores seem slightly more conservative that in previous vintages, this probably reflects the vintage`s personality, which is more backward than the more evolved 2006s or fabulous 2005s, which have always shown brilliantly. Steve Kistler told me that in 2007, they only cropped 22 tons of Pinot Noir fruit from their 18 acres of Pinot vieyards.`--Tasting Note by Robert Parker--
