2013 Hyde Vineyard ChardonnayJoin To Purchase
Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
The 2013 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard has fabulous fruit concentration, great acidity, discreet use of oak as well as notes of white peach and honeysuckle, currants and a touch of quince. Drink it over the next 4-6 years.
The 2013 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is laced with hints of orange blossom, dried orchard fruit, butter, smoke and savory notes – all typical of Wente clone Chardonnay – although there is less textural richness than is often the case. The Hyde is a pretty wine, but the vineyard signatures are not especially marked.
