Kistler 2014 Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay
Sourced since 1994. Located in the heart of Carneros, and planted in a primarily marine loam soil set, that becomes leaner as our block transits the hillside. Produces a wine of weight, without being heavy that is consistently supported by a strong acid profile and a steely like sulfide character.
On the nose citrus, buttered brioche, pineapples, light oak and spices. Palate: full bodied with balanced acidity light sweetness and a long nutty finish. Very bold with Serious wood treatment here.
