2016 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

A wine of great personality, the 2016 Larry Hyde and Sons Chardonnay bursts out of the glass with heady aromas of lime zest, fennel, and green apple. There is a great tension on the palate between the dense extract and the acidic cut. This wine is penetrating with lime oil, green tea, and fresh ginger. Expressive and palate-staining, this wine has the energy to drink young for a decade. Golden green and slightly hazy, showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
