I love this wine. This wasn't my favorite bottle of all time. It was a bit thin through the middle and lacked the complexity that I count on Kistler for. Maybe it's the 2011 vintage... Durell is my favorite vineyard for California Chardonnay hands down. It was still awesome. #champagneproblems

Awesome Chardonnay . Relaxing at home on a Sunday night with family and friends . This Kistler has intense Tropical fruits, just a kiss of oak that complimented the bouquet . Well rounded , overall can't say enough. Fabulous Producer. CB

Another solid, consistent Chard from Kistler. Melon, ripe fruits, moderate oak. Terrific.

Enjoyed this. Not as bursting in flavor as some the kistler single vineyards tried. But very Full bodied chard, coats the mouth. Very nicely balanced with citrus, green apple, mineral and a little oak/vanilla. Smell citrusy vanilla, stone and a hint of must. A rich wine with a nice balance of mineral, acidity and creaminess.
