TASTING NOTES

We find green apple, apricot, vanilla and a hint of oak in this vintage of Heritage Chardonnay. Well balanced, lemon on front palate, green apple and bright acidity mid to back palate, with vanilla and a final crisp finish.

WINEMAKER NOTES

The grapes had at least an hour of skin contact in the press, mainly for flavor
extraction. Fermentation is in 100% brand new French oak barrels, with the difference that the staves are water bent (instead of fire bent), which tones down the impact of the wood. Frequent lees stirring, or ‘batonnage’, at least three times a week for over seven months, contributes to the long finish and unique mouth-feel. Very approachable upon release, our Heritage Chardonnay exudes Hyde Old Wente clonal characteristics and will age beautifully for years to come.
