International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 138

($75) Bright gold. Vibrant, densely fruity aromas of melon, peach and yellow apple. Fresher citrus and Anjou pear flavors offer impressive depth and energy, picking up dusty minerals with air. Finishes with excellent lift and a lingering echo of orchard fruits. Much more fruit-dominated than Kistler's other chardonnays this year.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 168

A crisp, elegant yet powerful, mineral-dominated effort, the 2005 Chardonnay Vine Hill Vineyard is reticent at present, exhibiting scents of lemon oil, white currants, peaches, and orange rind. With striking intensity, great elegance, richness, precision, and delineation, this beautiful Chardonnay brought to mind a top-notch French Corton-Charlemagne.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Aromatically complex, with a mix of ripe pear, fig, citrus and hazelnut flavors that are tightly focused, with lively acidity, excellent depth and balance and a long, lingering finish that keeps repeating the fruit and oak themes. 3,645 cases made.
