The 2010 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard is gorgeous. Nectarine, flowers, honey, mint, pastry and sweet spices all flesh out in the glass. Stylistically the 2010 is a bit bigger and richer than most HdV wines because of the heat spikes, but over the last year the wine seems to have found its sense of energy, tension and minerality. The finish is long, supple and caressing. Today the 2010 is in a beautiful place right now.
