2021 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 2021 Larry Hyde & Sons is a classic representation of Carneros terroir. Concentrated aromas of crystallized ginger, sweet alyssum, and white nectarine are framed by an electric streak of citron peel. The palate seamlessly weaves sweet, spring florals together with caramelized stone fruit and lemon oil. Chalky minerality and fresh acidity balance the full-body and rich texture for a finish that lingers for minutes on end. Enjoy over the next 10 to 15 years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
