Kistler Stone Flat Vineyard Chardonnay 2018

$155

Limited single-vineyard Kistler Chardonnay now available. 95 Points Robert Parker:  "The Chardonnay Stone Flat Vineyard opens with wonderfully seductive tropical fruit notes of fresh pineapple, green guava and passion fruit with compelling sparks of lemon zest, wet pebbles, baking bread and cashew pieces plus a touch of fresh ginger. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is bursting with exotic fruits and zesty nuances with a decadent oiliness to the texture plus a racy line to deliver a very long, invigorating finish. ...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.
