The 2021 Larry Hyde & Sons is a classic representation of Carneros terroir. Concentrated aromas of crystallized ginger, sweet alyssum, and white nectarine are framed by an electric streak of citron peel. The palate seamlessly weaves sweet, spring florals together with caramelized stone fruit and lemon oil. Chalky minerality and fresh acidity balance the full-body and rich texture for a finish that lingers for minutes on end. Enjoy over the next 10 to 15 years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
The coolest of Aubert's Chardonnay sites, the 2021 Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons boasts lovely aromas reminiscent of melon, citrus curd and lime zest. It's full-bodied and creamy, with a silky, custardy mouthfeel and tremendous length.
The 2021 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is creamy, ample and wonderfully expressive. Lemon confit, mint, white pepper, candid ginger, orchard fruit and a kiss of new French oak all meld together. Bright acids lend vibrancy and nuance throughout. Give this a few years to come together. There's a lot of intensity, but the elements aren't fully integrated.
