LARRY HYDE CHARDONNAY: Everything you could want in a white wine

The grapes from Hyde Vineyard have long been sought after for some of California’s top-rated Chardonnays such as Aubert and Kistler.  Founded in 1979 by Larry Hyde, it is a grand cru-caliber site primarily known for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fruit.

In 2009, Larry decided to debut his own small lot production project and today the Hyde Estate Winery overlooks the acclaimed Carneros vineyards.

This new wine under the Larry Hyde brand, this 100% Chardonnay from the near-perfect growing season of 2016 is elegant and weighty with ripe citrus aromas and a deep core of rich pear and honeydew melon that brings fantastic complexity.  The finish is filled with a touch of butter, a hint of toasted hazelnut and refreshing acidity.

This bottling has everything you could want in a white wine:  it will pair wonderfully with food and has the most vibrant, fresh – dare I say caressing – flavors.
