DUMOL CHARDONNAY "CLARE", HYDE VINEYARD, CARNEROS 2013
The 2013 Chardonnay Clare comes 100% from the Hyde Vineyard and represents a 22-year-old Wente clone of Chardonnay. This wine displays more buttery brioche notes, hints of tangerine oil and lemon blossom, a subtle, discreet use of oak, loamy soil undertones, and a full-bodied, almost premier cru Meursault-like white Burgundy personality. Complex, rich and multi-layered, this is a beauty to drink over the next decade.
The 2013 Chardonnay Clare Hyde Vineyard has a real sense of phenolic intensity and salivating energy that balances the depth of the fruit. This is another wine that readers will need to cellar in order to experience the full range of Hyde. Smoke, slate, apricot pit and dried herbs are some of nuances meld into the finish.
