    Of equal quality but more flowery and minerally is the 2012 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard. This is from a warmer site than the Hudson, but it behaves like a cold-climate Chardonnay, with crisp, zesty acidity, white currants, quince and floral notes intermixed with citrus oil and lemon butter. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.

    Bright yellow. Captivating, fruit-driven aromas of yellow plum and lemon candy lifted by a floral topnote. Densely packed but not fat or oily, with penetrating acidity intensifying the wine's citrus, floral and chalky flavors. Wonderfully bright, refreshing, long chardonnay with terrific cut to its slightly tart lemony aftertaste. This is harmonious from day one but I'd give it a year or two to absorb some of its acidity and harmonize in bottle.

  • Since 1988, Patz & Hall has set a standard for Chardonnays and Pinots that epitomize poise and finesse. The winery is a partnership of four individuals - Donald Patz, James Hall, Anne Moss and Heather Patz - all of whom are veterans in the production of fine wine. Between them, they have made wine at Flora Springs, Honig Cellars, Far Niente, Marimar Torres, Spring Mountain and Cain Vineyard. They source from regions ranging from the Santa Lucia Highlands to Mendocino, and prime areas in between. The wines skillfully maintain the intricate and graceful dance between substance and balance, power and elegance - the key characteristics of world-class Pinot Noir.
