2017 Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay

The vineyard has a simple moniker, “a warm spot in a cool place.”  This unique climate allows us to achieve optimally ripe grapes with a vin-de-garde personality.  The wine exhibits organic notes derived from the soil, while the palate reveals immense depth and complexity.

Mark Aubert’s Tasting Notes

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.
