Kistler Sonoma Coast Chardonnay 2000
from Sonoma County, California
Kistler Chardonnay is made using traditional French techniques, with the winemaker himself performing the cellar work on the wines. Kistler Chardonnay has a distinct character. It is completely barrel-fermented using indigenous and cultured yeasts, is aged in 50% new French oak barrel unracked and in contact with all its fermentation lees has undergone a malolactic fermentation, receives minimal handling and processing, and is bottled unfiltered and, if clarity permits, unfined after 11-18 months of barrel age.

I ORIGINALLY HAD THE WINE AT THE HOME OF A SOPHISTICATED WINE DRINKER. ABSOLUTELY THE FINEST DOMESTIC I HAVE EVER HAD THE PLEASURE TO DRINK. EXCEPTIONALLY SMOOTH, VELVET TEXTURE WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY AFTER-TASTE. THE MELLOWEST WOOD/SMOKE FLAVOR. WELL WORTH THE SEARCH AND PRICE.
