2018 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 2018 Larry Hyde & Sons captivates with aromas of quince preserves, chamomile, lemon sorbet, and ginger root tea. Textured layers of citrus dominate the full-bodied palate with hints of lime leaves and crushed stone. This is a wine of distinction with a brilliantly fresh acidity and a long, luxurious finish. Please note the healthy greenish hue on the edge of the glass. The 2018 Hyde drinks well now but will enhance with extended cellaring. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
