Winemaker's Notes

Vine selection for our Hyde Vineyard wines are old Wente, Robert Young and Long Vineyards. The Wente produces a classic, Burgundian-style wine without the tropical fruit tones of some California Chardonnays. The Long Vineyards selection adds a floral note, and the Hyde Vineyard wines often seem charming and feminine. High natural acidity plays a prominent role.

Critical Acclaim

"Light gold. Intense, mineralinflected aromas of pear, nectarine and white flowers. Bright, penetrating and emphatically dry, offering vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavors and showing pronounced minerality. The strikingly long, energetic finish features notes of iodine, smoke and candied ginger, with a sneaky note of pit fruits adding depth."
94 Points

"A beautifully seamless wine, the 2010 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard wraps around the palate with stunning depth and pure beauty. Absolutely nothing is out of place in a wine that brings together fruit, acidity and structure. This dazzling wine represents one of the highlights in California Chardonnay. It is also one of the few wines in this tasting that still needs time to start showing well.
Range: 94+ Points"
94 Points

"Big, ripe and intense, offering a graceful mix of white peach, wet rock, lemon meringue, and fresh-cut wood. Builds momentum slowly, revealing impressive focus. Drink now through 2019."
