Review

Now fully mature, the 2005 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is a bit more evolved than the 2005 Ritchie Chardonnay tasted alongside it. Rich, honeyed and voluptuous on the palate, the 2005 Hyde is quite overt and opulent. Honey, sweet spices, orange peel, mint and wild flowers are laced into the super-expressive, resonant finish.
