This vineyard produces one of our most complete and complex Chardonnays, and nears perfection on an annual basis.
A selection of the finest barrels, the 2004 Chardonnay Kistler Vineyard Cuvee Cathleen (500 cases) has more of everything... honey, layers, body, depth, acidity, and precision. Year in and year out, it is a candidate for one of the finest Chardonnays made in California. That said, a 1997 Cuvee Catherine drunk on Thanksgiving was spectacular.
Yellow-gold. Earthy, mineral-driven orange and white peach aromas, with a sexy jasmine accent. Very elegant, with spicy citrus and pear flavors, impressive concentration and a slow-building baking spice quality. Finishes on a vibrant mineral note, with outstanding length and wonderful precision. This is all Wente clone.
Leesy pineapple, citrus and grapefruit peel give this a tight flavor profile and a minerally edge on the finish. Ends with a clean, refreshing aftertaste, with hints of honey and melon.
