Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

Bright gold. Smoky pear, honey and iodine on the nose, along with a suave building floral quality. Dried pear and peach skin flavors are braced by tangy acidity and take a brighter turn with air, picking up Meyer lemon and ginger nuances. Shows excellent clarity and lift on the back end, leaving notes of smoky minerals and candied orange peel behind.

From Kistler's home property, not far from the winery, the 2011 Chardonnay Vine Hill Vineyard bursts from the glass with superb aromas of tangerine oil, white peach, pineapple and wet stones. With good acidity, a long, full-bodied finish, and a precocious personality, it should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 3-4 years.
