DUMOL CHARDONNAY "CLARE", HYDE VINEYARD, CARNEROS 2014
The 2014 Chardonnay Chloe gives expressive guava, pink grapefruit and pineapple notes with touches of candied ginger, praline and brioche. Medium to full-bodied with a beautifully oily texture and packed with tropical fruit flavors, it finishes long and toasty. Drink Date 2017 - 2022 Lisa Perrotti-Brown 28th Feb 2017
The 2014 Chardonnay Clare Hyde Vineyard is an attractive wine, but it also comes across as a bit less complex than the other Chardonnays in the range. There is no shortage of depth or density, but the aromatics are a bit muted today. The Hyde went into tank with all of its lees, which, along with six months in tank, explains why the wine is not as expressive as some of the other wines in the range.
Highlighted by subtle white peach, nectarine and tangerine notes that are fresh and juicy, leading to a lively interplay of understated flavors. Ends clean and refreshing. Drink now through 2021. 690 cases made. Issue Web Only - 2017 JL
