About

94

"This bold, beautiful wine has toasted, oaky undertones that support concentrated layers of apple skin, caramelized crème brûlée and a texture of gritty minerality. Papaya, mango and baked pineapple tug at the palate amidst a strong streak of stone."

93 Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"A little closed at this youthful stage, the 2014 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard offers subtle honeyed peach, pineapple and passion fruit notes with touches of baking bread and cashews. The palate delivers the goods, packed with rich tropical fruit characters and a toasty/cedary undercurrent, framed by lively acidity and finishing long, with some spices coming through."

92 Antonio Galloni - Vinous

"One of flagships in David Ramey's range, the 2014 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is also one of the creamier, richer wines in this range. Stone fruit, mint, butter and light French oak notes give the wine its voluptuous, racy personality and oily feel. There is plenty of freshness and nuance to play off the fruit. As with all of these wines, though, the Hyde is less exuberant than in the past."

Product Description:

“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." -Winery
