The 200-acre Hyde Vineyard, considered one of California’s Grand Cru vineyards, includes one of the oldest blocks of Chardonnay grapes. Carneros has always been considered prime land for Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The shallower soil and cooler climates of Carneros result in smaller vines and grapes that turn into bright, ethereal wines.
Located on the Napa side of the Carneros AVA, Hyde Vineyard is truly one of California’s grand cru Chardonnay vineyards and a site that parallels the quality and prestige of our single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon portfolio. The 2017 Hyde Chardonnay is gracefully balanced with discreet scents of lemon, clove and minerals. This wine is rich and full, but with a refreshing, vibrant acidity that lightens the creamy, yogurt, tropical fruit, and sweet spice aromas.
