Tasting Notes

The sunshine-filled 2014 vintage combined with the unique Carneros site signature of Hyde Vineyard to result in another beautiful interpretation of this Chardonnay. Opening with ripe melon, white pineapple and apricot notes, the wine maintains its consistent white floral flavors and hints of brown spice. Sur lie aging incorporates fine custard and brioche notes into the fruity mouth feel, and juicy lemon oil leads the long mineral finish.
