Salty air mixed with native brush, Hyde’s Musque field blend offers wildly exotic aromatics and citrus cut minerality, you can taste the ocean. One of California’s most iconic sites. Chilly fog from the bay blankets the land in the morning while afternoon ocean winds sweep in from the Pacific. Our parcel of Hyde is a diversified field blend of Musque Clone planted in volcanic obsidian-laden soils creating a steely style of Chardonnay where you can practically taste the pebbles and stones.

 

2020 Auteur Hyde Chardonnay

Sophisticated with notes of crystalline honeycomb, with intense orange rind, quince, and white pepper. Grippy upfront and finishing with flinty and chalky tannins, blanched almond, and crushed stone – reminiscent of grand cru Chablis.
