Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

This is one of our finest bottlings of Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay in memory, and like many of our wines from the spectacular 2009 vintage, it is richly textured with beautiful density and depth. The nose offers classic Hyde notes of marmalade and ginger, with layers of cedar and smoke adding a complex counterpoint. On the palate, the citrus and orange peel flavors combine with notes of summer melon, grilled pineapple, pear, cinnamon, clove and a hint of honey. Though the acidity is subtle and integrated, in tandem with Hyde's signature minerality, it gives the wine energy and drive.

Critical Acclaim

"The reason why this winery scores so well, year after year, in Chardonnay is because the production team knows how to get maximum ripeness out of the grapes, while maintaining an integrity of structure. The ’09 Hyde exhibits this quality. It’s fantastically rich in oranges, apricots, pears and pineapples, yet possesses a bracing minerality and fine Carneros acidity."
93 Points

"Pale yellow-gold. Distinctly Chablis-like aromas of lemon ice, menthol and minerals. Dense and stony, with excellent inner-mouth lift to the licorice and menthol flavors. Still quite unevolved. Most impressive today on its very long, strong aftertaste, which features terrific energy and cut. This was aged in 50% new oak but I never would have guessed it. Hands off for at least a couple years"
