Wine Spectator | Rating: 88A touch raw and pithy, with lemon peel, grapefruit and green apple notes. This is clean and refreshing, and likely to gain with cellaring. Drink now through 2020. 976 cases made.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 96Made from 19-year-old vines planted in the Hyde Vineyard as well as the Hyde selection of the Old Wente clone, the 2012 Chardonnay Clare is a small cuvee of 630 cases that saw 52% new French oak. It exhibits a light straw color with a greenish hue along with notes of creme brulee, caramelized citrus, mango and pineapple, good underlying acidity, and a broad, intense, thick style. Drink it over the next decade.Author: Robert Parker
