About

94

There's a lemony leanness to this exquisite wine, from one of the most esteemed vineyards in its region, a site the producer has worked with for more than 20 years. Balanced, it opens with inviting aromas of white flowers & orange peel before delving into complex layers of fresh citrus, ginger snap & lavender.

"Of equal quality but more flowery & minerally is the 2012 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard. This is from a warmer site than the Hudson, but it behaves like a cold-climate Chardonnay, with crisp, zesty acidity, white currants, quince & floral notes intermixed with citrus oil & lemon butter. Drink it over the next 4-5 years." (12/13)

92+ Stephen Tanzer - Vinous Media

"Bright yellow. Captivating, fruit-driven aromas of yellow plum & lemon candy lifted by a floral topnote. Densely packed but not fat or oily, with penetrating acidity intensifying the wine's citrus, floral & chalky flavors. Wonderfully bright, refreshing, long Chardonnay with terrific cut to its slightly tart lemony aftertaste. This is harmonious from day one but I'd give it a year or two to absorb some of its acidity and harmonize in bottle." (06/14)

Product Description:

From the Winemakers' Website: "On the palate, this wine shows what makes Hyde such a grand cru-caliber site, with each sip revealing something new. This is a vivacious & mineral-infused wine, with elegant flavors of tangerine, orange blossom, honeysuckle, lavender & graham cracker".
