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 2019 is lively and driven by vibrant acidity, featuring tangerine and spearmint notes on the nose. The textured palate features a roasted grain and rye entry followed by hints of orange zest and wet stone that carry through the long, dense finish.
