This is the last of the 2019 vintage!

Sonoma Mountain Chardonnay has powerful aromas of yellow apples and a faint hint of peach skin. On the palate the wine has a dense concentration with crisp acidity and a touch of minerality in the finish.

Kistler Vineyards

Sonoma Mountain, California

Kistler Chardonnay is farmed with great attention to detail and individual vine balance between fruit and canopies. With our focus in the vineyard, the fruit when harvested should be the only ingredient needed to produce exceptional wines. All harvesting is done by hand at night when the fruit is freshest and brightest and all of our Chardonnays are produced in the same fashion. Long, gentle whole cluster pressing delivers high quality juice which is directly transferred to barrel and fermented with native yeasts. Full malolactic fermentations are encouraged as the wines are bottled after 10 months on their lees both unfined and unfiltered. Small tartrates may form in the bottle if cooled for prolonged periods of time as a result.

VINTAGE NOTES

The 2019 growing season was characterized by mild conditions and a slightly warmer shift in the evenings as harvest approached, leading to the softening of acidities well in line with ripening of the skins and flesh of the berries. The 2019’s have an inherent sense of approachability as a result.
