Hdv Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard 2006
Notes on the Hdv (Hyde Du Villane) Carneros Chardonnay 2006 : CONNOISSEUR'S GUIDE REVIEW: 93 POINTS Showing all of the richness and layered complexity that we have come to expect from HDV, this head-turning offering is at once fairly powerful but comes with an uncommon sense of finesse. It smells of well-ripened apples, sweet toast and wisps of roasted grains, and its deep, full-scaled flavors unfold with elements of minerals and spice lifting it above simple fruitiness. Full-bodied and slightly fleshy in feel with optimal acids affording it very fine balance, it is a serious Chardonnay that will take to aging, but it is wholly fascinating now.

A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2006 HdV Winery Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard 750ml
A savory white from the Hyde-de Villaine partnership, this comes from Hyde’s oldest blocks of chardonnay. It includes fruit from an old Wente section planted in 1979, and from a Calera San Benito selection planted in 1989, both dry-farmed in shallow loam soils. It has the plush richness of apple butter, cut by gingery acidity. With a day of air, the wine seems to grown fresher, its minerality and verve a seductive match for Dungeness crab.
