Kalin tends to be a sommelier's and hip wine journalist's darling, and why not? They do things their way, releasing all kinds of stuff when they deem it to be ready, even if it's been ageing for years and years. What's old is new and what's current is library with these guys, if that makes any sense. I love and respect that about Kalin. Truth be told, though, lately I've been a bit disappointed in their releases. This '93 Chard however, is delicious, hitting all the high notes of a properly cellared white, with rich yellow fruit, surprising lift and brightness as well as a very elegant texture. If you're a Kalin fan then you'll love it. If not, but you like well aged, mature whites, then you should definitely give this a try.
