Kistler approach to Pinot Noir is very similar to Chardonnay, but they have two clones. For the last 25 years they have been working on selecting which of the two they preferred and finally came to the conclusion that the answer was both. Kistler have been planting their newer Pinot Noir Vineyards with a field mix of the two selections of late, giving deference to neither and laying the groundwork for the next generation of Pinot Noirs to be as transparent to site, and their relativity to each other, as are the Chardonnays. Both selections are marked by very low yields, small berries, great concentration and color in the fruit and a propensity to hold their natural acids during ripening.
