1999 Kistler "Kistler Vineyard" Sonoma Valley Chardonnay
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1999 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard boasts a phenomenal perfume of sweet white corn mixed with wet rocks, candied citrus, smoke, and tropical fruit. It is full-bodied, with remarkable length and intensity. (RP)

Slightly hazy, pale yellow-gold. Superripe yet reticent aromas of dried fruits, minerals and hazelnut. Broad, rich and sweet but with perfectly harmonious acidity; highly concentrated, layered and suave. Intriguing stony and nutty nuances. Very long on the aftertaste.
Loads of rich, viscous fig, apricot, nectarine and a touch of honey is this deeply concentrated, almost syrupy bottling. Finishes with a luxurious aftertaste of exotic spices.
The iconic Kistler Vineyards produces some of the most sought after and spectacular Chardonnays in California. This small family established winery generally only sells their wines direct from the winery, to a select membership on their mailing list. At times we are able to obtain well stored wines from select private cellars, giving you the chance to try some of these wonderful wines.
