2016 Kistler "Vine Hill Vineyard" Russian River Valley Chardonnay

SKU #1445162 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark From vines around the estate in the Russian River, the 2016 Chardonnay Vine Hill is another rich, opulent effort that does everything right. White peach, caramelized pineapple, and white flower notes give way to a full-bodied Chardonnay that has building saltiness, good acidity, and a great finish. Both rich and fresh, it is an undeniably beautiful wine. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Coming from the “home” vineyard, the 2016 Chardonnay Vine Hill Vineyard opens with opulent fresh ginger, pineapple paste and guava scents with underlying accents of yuzu, hazelnuts, honeycomb and allspice. Rich, spicy and decadent in the mouth, it has a lively backbone of freshness lifting the many layers to a long, savory and spice-laced finish. (LPB) Inner quote mark (6/2018)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Chardonnay Vine Hill Vineyard is laced with bright saline, citrus and floral notes that give the wine energy. Medium in body, as all these wines are, the Vine Hill is built on a beam of tension that gives the wine its shape and sense of direction. This site, planted with Steve Kistler's selection of Wente Clone Chardonnay on AxR-1 rootstock, yields wines of real character. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2019)
