2016 Bouchaine Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay
Larry Hyde has been growing grapes in Carneros since the 70s—and this wine illustrates his spirit and dedication to premium wine growing. The nose has an uncanny resemblance to almond croissants, with apricot, white peach, and baking spice layers. Honey and stone fruit flavors are balanced with the tight minerality of the Old Wente clone which adds texture and structure. A dose of our most exclusive French oak highlights the rich and complex palate.
