Winemaker's Notes

This is a classic expression of Hyde Vineyard, and one of our standout wines of the vintage! The aromatics are intricate and inviting, with notes of honey, hazelnut, peach, cinnamon and narcissus. On the palate, this wine offers a lovely texture and just the right amount of intensity, with vibrant orange and grapefruit flavors, sophisticated minerality and a beam of bright acidity that adds focus to the pure fruit notes. The finish lingers with cinnamon and floral notes and subtle oak-inspired hints of clove and honey.

Critical Acclaim

"Intense and vibrant, offering a mix of spice, ripe pear and honeydew melon flavors, with subtle hints of smoke and cedar."
