2015 McCrea Vineyard ChardonnayJoin To Purchase
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chardonnay McCrea Vineyard features enticing notes of ripe grapefruit, white peaches and lime leaves with nuances of baking bread, fresh ginger and coriander seed. Medium to full-bodied, richly fruited and delivering a decadent oiliness to the texture, it fills the palate with citrus and stone fruit layers, finishing long and spicy.
Kistler's 2015 Chardonnay McCrea Vineyard is soft, open-knit and gracious, all of which will make it easy to drink and appreciate upon release. Orchard fruit, dried flowers, chamomile and almond notes grace a subtle, understated Chardonnay that speaks in hushed tones. Today, the McCrea is a bit subdued relative to how it showed from tank.
