WE 94 WA 93 IWC 92+ - "This is a standout of the vintage and a classic expression of Hyde, delivering alluring orange citrus and white flower aromatics that hover above the glass. On the palate, this wine shows what makes Hyde such a grand cru-caliber site, with each sip revealing something new. While the 2012 is less acidic than the 2011 vintage, this is still a vivacious and mineral-infused wine, with elegant flavors of tangerine, orange blossom, honeysuckle, lavender and graham cracker."


WE 94 WA 93 IWC 92+ Pts - Editor's Choice! According to Wine Enthusiast - "There’s a lemony leanness to this exquisite wine, from one of the most esteemed vineyards in its region, a site the producer has worked with for more than 20 years. Balanced, it opens with inviting aromas of white flowers and orange peel before delving into complex layers of fresh citrus, ginger snap and lavender."

According to Robert Parker - "Of equal quality but more flowery and minerally is the 2012 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard. This is from a warmer site than the Hudson, but it behaves like a cold-climate Chardonnay, with crisp, zesty acidity, white currants, quince and floral notes intermixed with citrus oil and lemon butter. Drink it over the next 4-5 years."

According to Stephen Tanzer - "Bright yellow. Captivating, fruit-driven aromas of yellow plum and lemon candy lifted by a floral topnote. Densely packed but not fat or oily, with penetrating acidity intensifying the wine's citrus, floral and chalky flavors. Wonderfully bright, refreshing, long chardonnay with terrific cut to its slightly tart lemony aftertaste. This is harmonious from day one but I'd give it a year or two to absorb some of its acidity and harmonize in bottle."

According to Wine Spectator - "Tangy, with a pithy lemon peel flavor and texture lending grip and persistence. Green apple notes linger. Drink now through 2019."

According to Wine & Spirits - "This chardonnay balances its golden peach sweetness with tart apple acidity and the fresh herb scent of wildflower honey, a fruity white to serve with roast salmon and peach salsa." 14.2% ABV.
