Overview of the Wine
"Beautifully crisp and bright oroblanco grapefruit, freshly-baked biscuits, orange marmalade and wet rocks, packed with white nectarine, lychee and honeysuckle with high notes of violet, flint, lemongrass all wrapped together in this elegantly restrained Chardonnay.
Deeply rooted in a transitional site of Sonoma between salt plains and metamorphic foothills, Green Acres is located in the coolest maritime valley of the Carneros. This site yields mineral-rich vibrancy and soaks up all that wonderful California sunshine making it one of our most popular and full-bodied Chardonnays."

93 Points - Ian Blackburn - Tasted October 2020
Now in its 6th year- this wine as achieved elevated tertiary aromatics, richness, and roundness from an optimal 2014 harvest. 2014 is a long aging vintage of merit for collectors of the Sonoma Coast. This wine balances between crisp and bright and balances the bold and deep. From citrus to freshly-baked biscuits; from orange marmalade and wet rocks, the playoff white nectarine and honeysuckle, vanilla and butter, with edgy notes of flint, lemongrass, and just enough wood character to guide a lengthy finish leaving a dazzling finish on this signature Hyde Vineyard effort.
