Kistler Dutton Ranch Chardonnay 2017

$129.99

Limited single-vineyard Kistler Chardonnay now available. 96 Points Robert Parker:  "The Chardonnay Dutton Ranch is totally strutting its stuff at this youthful stage, offering up flamboyant lemon curd, green mango and fresh pineapple notes with suggestions of candied ginger, nutmeg, toasted almonds and honey drizzled brioche. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely coated with creamy textured tropical fruits, supported by a lively line of freshness, finishing very long and fantastically spicy... ...The single-vineyard wines all represent much smaller quantities of wine. There have been several noticeable changes in the Kistler wines over the last few years, as they are certainly picking the Pinot Noir at an earlier date and going for less extraction, more fragrance and delicacy. The Chardonnays are still powerful wines but they have backed off the new oak to about 40%. (About 10 years ago, it was around 60%.) Other than that they are still potent and rich Chardonnays that are meant to be drunk in their first 4-6 years of life.
