2015 Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay

Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay

We were fortunate to buy a few tons of grapes from Larry Hyde in 2015. Larry Hyde is a true Carneros pioneer, always at the forefront innovating and pushing quality. We are proud to work with him and his sons on this little allocation of Chardonnay. Only 167 cases were produced.

Crafted with just 3.25 tons of small berries, this delicate, creamy Chardonnay was fermented in concrete eggs before aging on the lees in French oak barrels. The 2015's harmonious aromas and notes of lemon meringue, fresh pear and toasted coconut surround a firm core of natural acidity and minerality - an indicator of exceptional age-ability.
