"Rich in green apple and fig, this wine offers medium-bodied weight and breadth and grainy acidity. From the famous site planted to densely concentrated berries, it’s fleshy and textured, with plenty of complexity from spice and oak."

"The 2018 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is little closed, offering subtle glimpses at lemon peel, white peach and orange blossom scents with hints of oyster shells, shaved almonds and coriander seed. Medium bodied with a lovely satiny texture, it offers plenty of mineral and citrus flavors with a long, refreshing finish."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 91 pts
A thrilling rendition of Hyde Chardonnay, the low-yielding 2018 vintage has produced a profoundly complex and compelling wine with layered aromas of fresh peach, orange peel, walnut, wet earth, cardamom and fennel bulb. On the palate there is a mineral-driven energy that adds poise and clarity to the lush, forward flavors, with notes of wet stone and tart green apple drawing the wine to a bright, pure finish.
