Tasting Notes

Pale-medium yellow. Crushed stone, ginger, iodine, grapefruit and orange zest on the high-pitched nose. Spicy, fine-grained and densely packed, with superb flavor intensity and outstanding lift. Impressively broad but also light on its feet. Very long, unflagging, uncompromisingly dry finish features juicy citrus flavors and minerals. Here's another Kistler Chardonnay that could do some major damage in a blind tasting with top white Burgundies. 

Stephen Tanzer, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar.

The medium-bodied 2002 Chardonnay Hudson E-Block exhibits notions of lemon peel, tropical fruit (pineapple), and a hint of pear. Like many of the Kistler 2002 Chardonnays, there is a greenish hue to the light straw color. The flavors include a touch of smoke and earth, but this offering finishes short in the mouth.
