Winemaker's Notes

While this wine is profoundly consistent from vintage to vintage, the 2007 bottling of our HYDE VINEYARD Carneros Chardonnay may set a new benchmark, combining all the classic Hyde elements with an effortless sense of grace and precision. From its white flower and marmalade aromatics to its flavors of peach, spicy pear, cinnamon, clove, hazelnut and honeycomb, this multifaceted wine seamlessly balances beautiful acids with a plush, creamy quality—ultimately leading to a rich and satisfying finish

Critical Acclaim

"More orange marmalade, pineapple, honeysuckle, and candied fruit aromas jump from the glass of the deep, full-bodied, elegant, mineral-laced 2007 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard. The wood is pushed well to the background in this layered, well-textured offering. It should drink well for 5-6 years. For the past twenty years, Patz and Hall has been one of California-s finest negociant firms, accessing top quality fruit and vinifying and bottling their wines with minimal intervention. The following efforts represent the finest wines I have tasted from them in many years. "
94 Points

"Medium straw-yellow. Captivating nose combines high-pitched orange blossom and minerals with brown spices and nutty, smoky, vanillin oak. Broad, tactile and rich, with good spicy/floral lift and firm minerality giving energy to the wine. This really saturates the palate, finishing long, subtle and spicy."
