...so delicate, precise and nuanced... Candied lemon peel & lifted floral notes... striking, beautifully delineated Chardonnay. In most vintages, Hyde tends to give a decidedly forward style of Chardonnay. Mark Aubert's 2016 is all finesse.
Voluptuous and creamy, with densely packed flavors of apple pastry, pear tart and peach and hints of mango that are long and rich. The plush, complex finish is filled with notes of spice and dried herbs.
...provocative savory/meaty nose with yeast extract, brine & nut nuances over a core of ripe pears & white peaches, lime leaves... stone fruit & savory layers with a lovely oiliness to the texture offset by a racy acid line, finishing long.
