Winemaker Notes

Produced since 1988. Located on the eastern flank of Sonoma Mountain where redwoods still thrive in a very rare-for-the-area mix of Sonoma volcanics and limestone. Produces one of Kistler's more elegant wines, Chablis-like in its markings of white flowers and lime blossom with a chalk driven subtle, ethereal core of fruit.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Intense, with concentrated fruit and oak that are perfumed and floral, with layers of fig and nectarine folding in nicely. An elegant, restrained version from Kistler.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2000 Chardonnay McCrea Vineyard is a crisp, lemony, zesty effort with hints of lemon butter, grapefruit, and assorted citrus characteristics. The wine possesses high acid, subtle wood notes, and a 1996 Burgundy-like style. For readers seeking opulence, flesh, and luxurious fruit, this wine will always play it close to the vest, although its striking minerality is impressive.

Kistler Vineyards  Winery Image
Founded in 1978, Kistler Vineyards is a small, family-owned and operated winery specializing in the production of Burgundian style Chardonnay and limited amounts of Pinot Noir. Grapes are estate grown and purchased from vineyards in Sonoma County. In 1992, Kistler Vineyards moved all production to its Vine Hill Road Vineyard in the Russian River Valley.

Defined more by altitude than geographical outline, the Sonoma Mountain appellation occupies elevations between 400 and 1,200 feet on the northern and eastern slopes of the actual Sonoma Mountain and is part of the greater Sonoma Valley appellation. The mountain reaches 2,400 feet, its hills separating the cooling winds of Petaluma Gap from the Sonoma Valley.

On a cooler western flank, Pinot noir, Chardonnay and Syrah enjoy a great deal of success. Vineyards on its warmer, eastern side, interspersed with heavily forested areas, tend to include Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel, and Syrah. Given its complexity of topography and mesoclimates, Sonoma Mountain excels with a wide range of grape varieties.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
