This vineyard continues to show more and more personality as it ages. The 2015 Larry Hyde and Sons Chardonnay aromatically fills the room with limeade, talc, and citrus blossom. The wine is like a sorbet, waking and refreshing the palate. There is a sneaky concentration that builds with flavors of dried pineapple and spun sugar. Please note the greenish hue on the edge of the glass, which is indicative of the health of the wine. Layered with extract and acid, the 2015 Larry Hyde & Sons has what it takes to age for the next 10 to 15 years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chardonnay Larry Hyde and Sons Vineyard is simply amazing with a level of intensity that is through the roof, strutting notes of lemon oil, candied ginger, pink grapefruit and orange blossom with touches of yuzu and brioche, plus a waft of green tea. Full-bodied, finely constructed, oily and yet with tons of zing, this is simply a blockbuster and a delicious one at that.

Wine SpectatorBeautifully crafted, sleek, rich and deftly proportioned, this offers a racy core, tilting toward spicy green notes and flavors of honeydew and pear. Finishes with a kiss of spicy, toasty oak that captures the essence of the wine. Drink now through 2020. 1,040 cases made.
