2003 Chardonnay, Sonoma Coast

Winemaker Notes

Our first release from this new vineyard planted by Richard Hyde and his son Rick, brother and nephew of Larry Hyde, respectively. Named Sonoma Stage, it is at the apex of Stage Gulch Road between Petaluma and Carneros—a quite cool and windy site. This vintage is the second harvest, from fourth-leaf vines, and is 66% Wente selection from Larry Hyde's vineyard and 34% Dijon clone 95.
