PATZ & HALL CHARDONNAY HYDE VINEYARD CARNEROS 2013 375ml HALF-BOTTLE
The producer has been working with this vineyard since 1990 and this vintage, like so many others, is just a stunner, lovely and inviting, crisp and well-crafted with a zip of minerality. Floral honeysuckle and beeswax rise on the nose, opening the way for tastes of mandarin orange, ginger and toffee. Drink now, or if you can possibly contain yourself, through 2023.

The 2013 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard (1,100 cases produced) is made from the Hyde-Old Wente clone. From sandy, clay, loam soils, it offers up aromas of honeysuckle, white peach, delicate pineapple and subtle oak. Medium to full-bodied with great acidity as well as beautiful purity and freshness, it should drink nicely for 5-7 years, perhaps longer.eRobertParker.com # , #216 (Dec 2014) Drink 2015 - 2022
Pale, bright yellow. Pure, high-pitched aromas of lemon oil, tangerine and ginger. Refreshing, fine-grained and light on its feet, offering pleasingly tangy flavors of ginger, flowers, minerals and crushed stone. This very suave, dry Chardonnay finishes with lovely sappy lift and length. Quite Burgundian in style. 2017 - 2022. Antonio Galloni May 2015
