($75) Yellow-gold. Deep, leesy aromas of pear, tangerine and smoked meat, with a strong undertone of iodine. Weightier and rounder than the Hudson, with palate-saturating citrus and orchard fruit flavors and chewy texture. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with sweet, lingering citrus and mineral qualities. I suspect that this and the McCrea will be drinking well before the rest of these single-vineyard bottlings.

Lemon grass, orange blossom, marmalade, and nectarine characteristics along with notes of buttered citrus, peach, and wet stones are found in the 2006 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard. A full-bodied, beautifully textured style suggest this beauty will drink nicely for 5-7 years.

Clear, light yellow. Sweet aromatics with zingy lemon, peaches and orange peel with a little hint of toffee. Full bodied, but more delicate in flavour than expected. Lovely texture with citrus fruits, peach and soft creamy oak on the palate.
