Winemaker's Notes

Produces one of our most complete and complex chardonnays, and nears perfection on an annual basis.

Critical Acclaim

"The luxury cuvee, the 2007 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Cathleen is essentially a selection of their best barrels from the Kistler site. It possesses pretty much everything a Chardonnay should have – great acidity, fabulous fruit, texture, remarkable aromatics, and a long, 40+ second finish.
Range: 94-97"
97 Points

"Light gold. Precise, high-pitched aromas of lime, honeysuckle and minerals, with complicating notes of anise and iodine. Dense, intense and impeccably balanced, showing a very firm mineral spine without coming off as austere. In fact, this is extremely concentrated, offering powerful pear and fresh fig flavors and a late note of honeysuckle. Quite steely on the pure, dusty finish, which displays sneaky length and a touch of smokiness."
