Vineyard: Hyde Vineyards, one of the most highly acclaimed vineyards of Carneros, planted in 1981, is situated on gently rolling hills with summer temps cooled by San Pablo Bay and the fog. Ancient creek beds provide drainage to red clay loam and a scattering of rocks. Wente Hyde Field selection and Robert Young clones are planted in our dedicated rows.
: The 2014 is similar to the 2011: lean with great minerality and brightness, for which Hyde Vineyard Chardonnays are renowned. Crisp citrus notes yet still a finely balanced and complex wine. Naturally
handcrafted, this wine is unfined and unfiltered, clarified by careful racking before bottling to maintain maximum complexity and suppleness.
