Hyde De Villaine Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay 2019 (750ML)
Wine Spectator #3 Wine of 2022
96 Points, Erin Brooks, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2019 Chardonnay comes from vines in the Hyde Vineyard that are 25-40 years old and planted to Wente (60%) and Calera (40%) selections. Aged in about 15% new French oak, the nose is perfumed and pure, with scents of quince, apricot, beeswax, river stone and citrus blossoms. The palate offers a compelling dynamic of satiny, expansive fruits and fresh, focused acidity, and it has a long, nuanced finish. It will continue to unwind in bottle over the next 2-3 years and gain savory complexity over the next decade." 07/22
96 Points, James Suckling, JamesSuckling.com: "Honeysuckle, oyster-shell and apple-pie aromas. Pears and lime sherbet, too. Flinty. Full-bodied, layered and integrated with fine phenolics. Some matchbox character comes through. Stemmy and spicy at the end from whole-cluster pressing. Wente and Calera clones. Drink or hold." 04/22
CRITIC Wine Spectator ITEM 526322 RATING 96 NOTES 96 Points, MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator: "This stunning version offers a pure beam of white nectarine, mango and ripe Bartlett pear flavors that mingle with notes of pound cake, toasted, salted hazelnut and nutmeg on a supple, rich frame, which draws focus from a bright thread of acidity. Drink now through 2030. 2,323 cases made." 07/22
