This gorgeous Chardonnay spotlights the Hyde-Old Wente Clone, which we call a heritage clone because its parentage can be traced back to the 1930s in California. It is a stand out on our site, producing a creamy, lush Chardonnay with vibrant citrus-melon notes.
We find grilled grapefruit, green fig and pretzel dough aromas that accompany the light honey notes found in this vintage of Heritage Chardonnay. Bright acid balances a creamy mouthfeel and long finish.
Very approachable upon release, the Heritage exudes Hyde Old Wente Clonal characteristics and will be quite enjoyable for several years to come.
Food Pairing Notes
Pairs beautifully with crab cakes, salmon tartar, bacon wrapped scallops, prosciutto, whole wheat pasta and caper pesto. This is a great vegetable wine...especially heirloom tomatoes.
