Winemaker's Notes

Produces a wine of weight, without being heavy that is consistently supported by a strong acid profile and a steely like sulfide character.

Critical Acclaim

"Deeper yellow color. High-pitched, soil-inflected aromas of iodine, earth and lemon, with a more exotic hint of orange peel. Rich, chewy and seamless on the palate; conveys an impression of sweetness, but the lemon, grapefruit and crushed stone flavors are also quite penetrating. A very young, chewy wine with terrific precision and depth. Finishes subtle and very long, with a bit more grip than the Hirsch."
94 Points

"Light gold in color, the 2001 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard reveals intense aromas of buttery honeysuckle, lemon oil, toast, and smoke. More exotic/flamboyant than its siblings..."
