Wine Review: This pale yellow colored Chardonnay from Ramey was well received by the panel. It opens with an attractive pear bouquet with hints of lemon, toasted marshmallow and vanilla oak. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and fresh. The flavor profile is a mild vanilla oak influenced Granny Smith apple with notes of lemon. We also detected hints of lychee and butterscotch as well. The finish is dry and refreshing. The panel suggested pairing this very nice Chard with broiled scallops finished with an orange butter cream sauce. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Vine selection for our Hyde Vineyard Chardonnays are predominantly old Wente with some Robert Young—itself a Wente selection. The Wente produces a classic, Burgundian-style wine without the tropical fruit tones of some California Chardonnays. Hyde Vineyard wines often seem charming and feminine, with high natural acidity playing a prominent role.

Organic status: not organic
