2016 Hyde Vineyard ChardonnayJoin To Purchase
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
The 2016 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard gives up gregarious notes of underripe pineapple, green mango and grapefruit with suggestions of brioche, beeswax, toasted almonds and yeast extract. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is coated with silken-textured tropical and savory layers, complemented by a harmonious line of freshness and finishing impressively long and mineral laced
The 2016 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is a wine of real density, weight and gravitas, all qualities that are such signatures of this Carneros site. Creamy and voluptuous in the glass, the 2016 exudes textural richness in all of its dimensions. The Hyde is one of the more virile, potent wines in the range. There is no shortage of personality or character. That is abundantly clear.
