2018 Chardonnay, Hyde Vineyard
The only vineyard partner that we work with outside of Sonoma County, the Hyde family has been working the Carneros soils starting in the late 70s. The 2018 Hyde Chardonnay is built around two selections, Robert Young (54%) and Musque (46%).
Apple tart with a hint of chai-spice greet the nose leading into flavors of white peach and apricot. Partial malolactic fermentation gives a lovely texture in mid-palate while chalky salinity provides freshness.
