Kistler Chardonnay never disappoints!

Few California wines have the feverish demand of Kistler. If you are already a Kistler fan, you know how rare the wines are. Typically limited to restaurants and the winery's exclusive mailing list, here is your opportunity to snatch up one of the highest caliber Chardonnays out of North America.

"If the Kistler winery could be transported to the middle of Burgundy, it would quickly gain a reputation as glorious as any producer of Burgundy's Grand Crus." Robert Parker

Kistler's Sonoma Mountain grapes are grown in a rare combination of red volcanic and fine-grained chalky soils.

The result?

Aromas of tangerine, citrus and smoky hazelnut intermix in this Burgundian style white. It displays intense fruit flavors underpinned with toasty oak and roasted nut. Crisp acidity complements the wine's rich texture.

This exclusive Chardonnay pairs wonderfully with roasted chicken, lobster, shrimp scampi or fresh tortellini with roasted pine nuts.

Enjoy now and over the next 15 years.

$72.95 per bottle / $875.40 per case
