The growing season was especially warm and dry in 2016, giving perfect condition of maturity. The grapes were ripe and flavors well-developed. Hyland Vineyard Chardonnay grapes have been picked on the last day of harvest and pressed the same day (September 9th) . 2016 reveals a pure and complex Chardonnay, with a nice acidity.
A brilliant gold color wine. The nose is pure with citrus and yellow fruits aromas, white flowers and fine spicies. The palate is pure too and well-balanced between the freshness of the acidity and the roundness of the alcohol. The minerality has a substantial presence and is very expressive, giving a nice fresh finale.
All seafood, light poultry and vegetables or simply on its own.

about the grape +
Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
