Wine Enthusiast

This is a seamless, Old World and classic white, integrated in salty oak with a beautiful opening nose of lemon rind. Lifted, persistent acidity gives it focus and freshness, as a taste of briny oyster shell, lemongrass and Asian spice mingle around well-integrated thoughtful oak. This is a beautiful wine.

Wine Advocate

The 2016 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard reveals evocative grapefruit, white peach and green mango notes with suggestions of fresh ginger, almond croissant and honeysuckle. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers a fantastic intensity of citrus and tropical flavors with a racy backbone and a long, mineral-laced finish.
