"The 2015 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard offers good immediacy and plenty of up-front appeal, if not quite the nuance, delineation or complexity of the most expressive wines here. Next to the other wines in this range, the Hyde offers plenty of fruit depth and richness, but I would have liked to see more Hyde character, especially given the pedigree of this site. Today, the Hyde is uncharacteristically timid." (VM)

Winery Notes:
Green-tinged pale yellow. Site influenced aromas of ripe stone fruit flesh, roasted grains and grilled nuts. Penetrating, expressive and light on its feet, showing a firm acid spine and a slight oily texture behind its primary green fruited and hazelnut flavors. Delicious.
