Ramey Wine Cellars Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard 2019
WA97: The 2019 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is age-worthy and expressive—the aromatic intensity is turned up and flavors are notably pure and in focus. It unfolds scents of lemon oil, Greek yogurt, petrichor, flint and underlying wafts of cheese rind as it spends time in the glass. The palate is youthfully taut, displaying the saline and tanginess characteristic of youthful Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay—this will require plenty of time to unwind in bottle. Its concentrated citrus and stony character creates a shimmery impression that energizes the long finish and adds a touch of magic to this wine.
