2008 Brut Napa VAlley Carneros - Hyde Vineyards (1 x 750 ml)
Larry Hyde's Chardonnay Vineyards are located on north side of Bayview Avenue, in the Napa side of the Carneros AVA. The vineyards border the Carneros Creek, which provides the vines with a surplus of nutrients and water with which to grow. The Pinot Noir is planted in the foothills just north of the Carneros Highway. Intense flavors and gripping acidic structure are found in the grapes that are harvested from these vineyards. We have enjoyed working with the Hyde family since the mid-1990's, consistently blending lots produced from their vineyards into our top Tête de Cuvée blends: J. Schram, Reserve and J. Schram Rosé.
The 2008 Brut Hyde has bursting aromas of fresh grapefruit- Winemakers Keith Hock and Hugh Davies
and lime, followed by juicy pineapple. The fruitful nose is
complemented by notes of warm bread dough and almond. On
the palate, there are flavors of tangerine, lemon drop and kisses
of under-ripe red berry. The wine finishes with elegant vitality,
which is crisp, long and refreshing.
