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.

TASTING NOTES

Green apple, honeysuckle, mandarin orange, and vanilla are the predominant aroma of this vintage of Heritage Chardonnay. Creamy with good acid. Flavor of baked apple pie on the front palate transitions into vanilla with a hint of caramel flavors on the back palate.

WINEMAKER NOTES

The Hyde Old Wente grapes had at least an hour of skin contact in the press, mainly for flavor extraction. Fermentation occurs in water – bent French oak barrels, which we
favor for their subtle oak impact. Frequent lees stirring, or ‘batonnage’ at least three times a week for over seven months, contributes to the long finish and unique mouth-feel.
