Jason Kesner, winemaker extraordinaire at Kistler created yet another amazing wine. Jason was the longtime vineyard manager at Hudson, when in 2002 he produced 25 cases of his first wine for some of the top restaurants like French Laundry, Gary Danko and Golden Gate Wine Cellars! The following year he produced a massive 75 cases, and the rest as they say is history. Moreover, Jason has brought Kistler to new heights as well, where he has been in charge of winemaking since 2012.  The KESNER CHARDONNAYS are on the “Highly Recommended List” at the French Laundry for over 10+ years straight!

 

Tasting Notes: “There’s always a compelling juxtaposition in this wine, between its depth and the liveliness of the natural acids. With the 2015 that inherent tension is at the forefront. Tones of lightly grilled Meyer lemons, green orchard fruit flesh, fresh crème and struck flint. A luxurious lush mouthfeel that at very first blush belies the verve of the natural acids. Then they take over and thread through the finish, which lasts, and lasts. Intriguing. Fulfilling!  This wine is round and creamy without being “syrupy” amazing flavors, one would think he was drinking a Montrachet!
