Aubert Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard Chardonnay 2017
The 2017 Larry Hyde and Sons Chardonnay bursts from the glass with aromas of powdered ginger, lime zest, white peach, and lemon oil. This wine is textured with lavish layers of fresh pear, green tea, lemongrass, and honeycomb that combine for a long and seamless finish. Balanced and well-proportioned, drink this wine over the next 10-15 years. The greenish hue on the edge of the glass is indicative of the health of the wine. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

The 2017 Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons explodes from the glass with bombastic lime cordial, pink grapefruit and rhubarb pie scents with suggestions of fresh ginger, green mango and acacia honey plus a touch of praline. Full-bodied, the palate has a wonderfully savory undercurrent with brioche nuances complementing the powerful tropical fruit, framed by great freshness, finishing with epic length.
