“92 Points. This subtle but deep wine offers pure Bosc pear and Gravenstein apple flavors on a medium to full body backed by gentle acidity. It’s well balanced, calm and cool, with little obvious oakiness. Best from 2024–2030.” – Jim G.
Vanilla, Myer lemon, and red apple dominate the nose. Stone fruit on the front palate, with, with honeysuckle and green apple in the mid-palate. Creamy and smooth with a hint of oak on the finish.

This wine is a “what if” blend. Playing with the 2019 vintage we tasted a trial or lab blend of the ten most delicious barrels of Hyde Old Wente Clone Chardonnay and fell in love.
Lighter than air, puffed up high and golden brown, it’s center still soft and molten, this is a swoon worthy dish to pair with Joy!View Recipe
