Wine Advocate 93 points - The 2011 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard reveals slightly higher acids along with more concentrated tropical fruit notes such as pineapple and tangerine, medium body, excellent purity, and surprising length and richness for a 2011. It, too, should be drunk over the next 3-4 years.  (Dec 2013)

Wine Spectator 91 points - Ripe and juicy, with a vibrant core of tangerine-laced green apple and pear flavors that fan out and gain depth and complexity on a long finish, echoing honeydew melon nuances. Drink now through 2020.—J.L. (Mar 19 2014)

92 PTS – International Wine Cellar
"Green-tinged yellow. Orange peel, pear and chalky minerals on the incisive nose, with complicating hints of white flowers and iodine. Sappy and densely packed, with a distinctly mineral cast to its flavors of poached pear, lemon curd and honeysuckle. Finishes with building minerality and outstanding persistence, the stony, iodiney quality repeating."

Winemaker’s Notes
Vine selection for our Hyde Vineyard wines are old Wente, Robert Young and Long Vineyards each a Wente selection themselves – ranging in age from 13 to 32 years old. The Wente produces a classic, Burgundian-style wine without the tropical fruit tones of some California Chardonnays. The Long Vineyards selection adds a floral note, and the Hyde Vineyard wines often seem charming and feminine. High natural acidity plays a prominent role.

Wine maker notes
Located in gently rolling terrain north of Carneros Highway, the soils are quite heavy clay. Vine selection is Old Wente and Long Vineyards, and the vines range from 7 to 24 years old. The Wente is marked by very small grape clusters, with small berries, and the so-called "hen-and-chick”--large and small berries within the same cluster.

The Wente produces a classic, Burgundian-style wine, without the tropical fruit tones of some California Chardonnays. The Long Vineyards selection adds a floral note, and the Hyde Vineyard wines often seem charming and feminine.

Hyde Vineyard fruit has structure and density and are therefore able to absorb more oak without being overwhelmed. The wine will see around seventy percent new Burgundian barrels and spend up to twenty-one months in barrel, completely sur lies, before being bottled without filtration.
