Aubert, 2015 Aubert Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard

"The 2015 Chardonnay Larry Hyde and Sons Vineyard is simply amazing with a level of intensity that is through the roof, strutting notes of lemon oil, candied ginger, pink grapefruit and orange blossom with touches of yuzu and brioche, plus a waft of green tea. Full-bodied, finely constructed, oily and yet with tons of zing, this is simply a blockbuster and a delicious one at that."

Aubert, 2015 Aubert Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard

"This has a fantastic linear and bright acidity with gorgeous cream, cooked apple and pear. Full body, tangy and minerally. Lovely and intense. Drink now or hold."
Wine Spectator
Aubert, 2015 Aubert Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard

"Beautifully crafted, sleek, rich and deftly proportioned, this offers a racy core, tilting toward spicy green notes and flavors of honeydew and pear. Finishes with a kiss of spicy, toasty oak that captures the essence of the wine. Drink now through 2020. 1,040 cases made."

2015 Aubert Chardonnay Larry Hyde & Sons Vineyard

The vineyard has a simple moniker, “a warm spot in a cool place.” This unique climate allows the Aubert team to achieve optimally ripe grapes with a vin-de-garde personality. Soils of Carneros are thin and the vines struggle to find nutrients, thus low vigor is the norm. Grapes are harvested at night. Primary and secondary fermentation are conducted in barrel and take nearly 7 months to complete.

The wines are fermented with 100% Native yeast in barrel. The outcome is a slightly hazy wine due to Aubert's commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
