Vine selection for our Hyde Vineyard Chardonnays are predominantly old Wente with some Robert Young-itself a Wente selection. The Wente produces a classic, Burgundian-style wine without the tropical fruit tones of some California Chardonnays. Hyde Vineyard wines often seem charming and feminine, with high natural acidity playing a prominent role.

Wine SpectatorPrecise and powerfully structured, with intense Asian pear, apple and ripe citrus flavors that feature rich, savory notes. Displays concentrated minerality on the spicy and textured finish. Should blossom in the cellar. Best from 2021 through 2025. 1,256 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis producer's blocks were planted in 1991 and 1997 to field selections of both Wente and Robert Young clones. Juicy, tight and tension-filled, it is both complex and high-toned in approach, with looming acidity that freshens in tart lemon-peel, grapefruit and tangerine flavors-a classic and elegant wine.
