Hyde 2017 Chardonnay, Estate – Carneros Napa Valley – 96 Points

$64.99

From a site in Carneros owned by the Hyde Family (aka the King of Carneros), the 2017 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard offers up a deep, rich, yet beautifully fresh style as well as perfumed notes of lemon peel, juicy citrus, and honeyed apples. It picks up a hint of pineapple with time in the glass, has building richness, and powerful yet elegant texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. It’s a beautiful 2017 Chardonnay that’s drinking great today.

 

Robert Parker 96 Points: “The 2017 Chardonnay Larry Hyde opens slowly, offering subtle glimpses of lime peel, fresh grapefruit and white peaches to begin before giving way to a compelling core of Bosc pears, fennel seed, marzipan and shaved ginger. Medium-bodied with tons of elegance and latent energy, the palate delivers tightly wound layers of citrus and stone fruit plus loads of mineral accents and a racy line of freshness, finishing long and zesty. I’d give this another year or two in the bottle and drink it over the following 7-8 years.”
