2015 Bouchaine Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay
The premiere release of a Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay at Bouchaine! Larry Hyde has been growing grapes in Carneros since the 70's - and this wine illustrates his spirit and dedication to premium wine growing. The nose has an uncanny resemblance to almond croissants, with peach preserves and baking spice layers. Honey and stone fruit flavor are balanced with the tight minerality of the Old Wente clone, which adds texture and structure. A dose of our best French oak highlights the rich and complex palate.
