TASTING NOTES

From a vineyard associated more with Pinot Noir than Chardonnay, the 2001 Chardonnay Hirsch Vineyard exhibits a light gold color as well as a big, earthy, mineral-filled bouquet with notions of scorched smoke, citrus oil, and a striking liquid stone character. 

Robert Parker, Wine Advocate.

Full lemon-yellow, with a green tinge. Highly aromatic, complex nose melds mirabelle, citrus skin, nutmeg and stone. Steely and tightly wound but with its richness already apparent. Dense, tactile chardonnay, with a strong flavor of dusty stone, as well as the complicating sulfidey note characteristic of so many Kistler wines. Finishes quite minerally and structured.
