The 2017 Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay is another beautiful wine from David Ramey in this vintage. This spent 20 months in 20% new French oak and lightly fined and bottled without filteration. The result is a gorgeous Chardonnay that begins with aromas of orchard fruits, lemon oil and hints of pineapple along with jasmine and a lovely underlying mineral character all taking shape in the glass. On the palate this is beautifully balanced with a lovely combination of delicious fruit, acidity and minerality that persists all they way through the wine. This is drinking exceptionally well today, however it should also go on to offer years of drinking pleasure ahead.
