Coming from what Hyde calls "Small Cluster Clone" vines, producing very small yields, this wine went through natural primary and malolactic fermentations in Saury and Damy barrels. It is due to be bottled without fining or filtration. A barrel sample, the 2018 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard bursts from the glass with electric lime cordial, green mango and fresh grapefruit notes plus nuances of honeysuckle, coriander seed and lemongrass and a waft of chalk dust. Medium-bodied, elegantly styled and yet super intense in the mouth, it has a beautiful satiny texture and a wonderfully racy backbone, finishing very long and mineral laced. (LPB)
Not yet bottled, the 2018 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard Cuvée Susan has a ripe, lush bouquet of pineapple, peach, honeysuckle, and toasted spices that just jumps from the glass. This carries to a rich, textured, beautifully layered Chardonnay that has good acidity, no hard edges, and a great finish. It’s another impressive Chardonnay from this team.
The 2018 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is wonderfully nuanced and textured, with all of the resonance that is typical of Hyde Chardonnays as well as terrific class. White orchard fruit, white flowers, mint and white pepper add striking aromatic top notes. This is an especially fresh style for TOR, part of which is attributable to the personality of the year.
