All Wente clone, the 2019 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is another brilliant wine from Jesse Fox and Tony Biagi. First made in 2017 and from a site in Carneros, it saw full malolactic fermentation and 11 months in 40% new François Frères barrels. Classic California notes of lemon curd, caramelized citrus, flower oil, and honeysuckle all define the nose, and it’s medium to full-bodied, with a great texture and balancing acidity. It’s beautifully done and ideal for drinking over the coming 4-6 years.
