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

V 92
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Pale lemon-yellow color. Chablis-like aromas of wet stone, lemon cream, nutmeg, mint and minerals. Very ripe in the mouth, with sweet but lively lemon curd and stone fruit flavors. Firm acids frame the strong fruit and give the wine solid structure. Finishes with sneaky length.

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
The 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.
