Vineyard Notes:

Larry Hyde farms some of the most sought after grapes in the cool Carneros growing region of Napa. This wine is a blend of two blocks of Chardonnay from the Hyde Vineyard.

Production Notes:

The grapes are hand-picked, carefully sorted, whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented. The wine spends 13 months in French Oak, with 60% new barrels.

Winemaker Notes:

The 2007 vintage was one of the best in recent memory. After a normal bud break, the valley experienced mild weather through the growing season with a slightly cooler summer and warm September. This climate resulted in slow, even ripening with a crop just slightly smaller than normal, and the highly desired small berry size. Winemakers across the valley are very excited about the 2007 vintage.
