2011 Ramey Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard


Robert Parker 93 Points

The 2011 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard reveals slightly higher acids along with more concentrated tropical fruit notes such as pineapple and tangerine, medium body, excellent purity, and surprising length and richness for a 2011. It, too, should be drunk over the next 3-4 years.

Wine Spectator 91 Points

Ripe and juicy, offering a vibrant core of tangerine-laced green apple and pear flavors that fan out and gain depth and complexity on a long finish, echoing honeydew melon nuances. Drink now through 2020. 823 cases made.–JL

International Wine Cellar 92 Points

Green-tinged yellow.  Orange peel, pear and chalky minerals on the incisive nose, with complicating hints of white flowers and iodine.  Sappy and densely packed, with a distinctly mineral cast to its flavors of poached pear, lemon curd and honeysuckle.  Finishes with building minerality and outstanding persistence, the stony, iodiney quality repeating.-JR
