Kistler Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Californien 2021

Kistler was founded in 1978 with the idea that excellent, terroir-driven wines could be made in California. Steve Kistler and Mark Bixler believed that remarkably good Chardonnay could be made in the state. In that way, they were ahead of their time. Bill Price, longtime owner of Durell Vineyards, purchased an interest in Kistler Vineyards from Steve Kistler in 2008. Jason Kesner joined Steve in the cellar in 2008 to begin laying the groundwork for the next forty years. Steve retired from Kistler Vineyards at the end of 2017.

The grapes are originally from a Grand Cru vineyard in Burgundy and have been for the past twenty-five years. Like the Chardonnay clone, they produce a very low yield, resulting in wines with a natural density and concentration of flavor, balanced by elegant natural acids and heightened aromas.
The grapes are harvested in the dead of night, and above all in cool temperatures. Then the grapes are freshest and retain their acidity best.
Each Pinot Noir fermentation is manually monitored 24 hours a day. Fermentation is controlled as little as possible. The wines therefore ferment on wild yeast at moderately cool temperatures and with little or no processing of the grapes.
