Bright gold. Exotic, intensely perfumed aromas of poached pear, anise and chamomile, with a salty topnote. Mineral-accented orchard and citrus fruit flavors show impressive depth and precision, with vibrant ginger and floral qualities and a note of iodine adding to the impression of energy. Finishes extremely long, stony and chewy, leaving intense mineral and spice notes behind.

The 2009 Chardonnay Parmelee-Hill Stone Flat Vineyard is one of the more structured, mineral-driven wines in this lineup. It shows marvelous focus and length in an energetic style that is immensely appealing. This head-spinning Chardonnay boasts tremendous integration of fruit, acidity and overall textural elegance. Give it another year or so in bottle and enjoy it over the next few years.

Fragrant floral and white peach notes offer a tight core of baked apple and crushed rock flavors. A sleeker, trimmer style for Kistler, laced by mineral accents.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
