2020 Stringer Cellars 'Hyde Vineyard' Chardonnay Carneros
Full-bodied and bright, with beautiful tension, we’re loving the intense apricot and dried pineapple aromas that introduce this layered delight.
The 2020 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard prances out with showy notes of pineapple upside-down cake, lemon meringue pie, and lime cordial, followed by suggestions of allspice, candied ginger, and mandarin peel. The medium-bodied palate is electric with intense tropical and citrus fruit layers, supported by a racy backbone and a suggestion of creaminess to the texture, finishing long and spicy.
Intense aromas of apricots, dried pineapples, lemon curd, crushed shells, praline and flint. Cooked pears too. It’s full-bodied with bright acidity and excellent phenolic tension. Focused, layered and refined. Long. Drink or hold.
