Last May Lee and I made our first trip to wine country. While we figured we would join a few wine clubs, we did the novice thing and got
drunk tipsy and joined every winery we stopped at, more or less.
This included Kistler.
BEAUTIFUL property, first of all. Even if the wine had been so-so the visit would have been worth it for this view.
Trust me – the wine is magnificent.
Until this visit I was giving up on Chardonnay. I find that the $20-$30 bottle I grab at the store tastes quite “manufactured.” Artificial. And then I end up with a headache the next day because of whatever was done to the wine to make it “taste oaky.”
Bring in Kistler and their bright wonderful Chardonnay.
Acidic, citrus, honey, and even a little toast on the end. Just amazing.
