Winery notes:

"2020 gave birth to wines full of character and personality, emphasizing the strength and resilience of Hyde Vineyard. The growing season was defined by extreme drought conditions and intense heat, creating challenges for even growth and ripening. Yields were light but the resulting wines are of precision and concentration, accompanied by brighter natural acid and pronounced minerality. Despite the challenges 2020 presented in the vineyards as well as our personal lives, we are proud of the wines we were able to create to commemorate Hyde de Villaine's 20th anniversary! 

"Aromas of Golden Delicious apple and honeysuckle are balanced by hints of nutmeg, saline and white pepper. Subtle herbal tones of lemon verbena lend to a “nervy” edge of this wine that cuts through the palate. Flavors of apricot and mango round out the brighter tones of lime and other bright citrus. The lean texture and a tension in the wine promises to reward those that are able to cellar."

Critical acclaim:

"96 points. A stunning, expressive white, with a savory, minerally edge that's distinctive and crisp, imparting elegance and restraint on the core of Honeycrisp apple, Meyer lemon and pureed mango flavors. Reveals hints of lemon thyme, nutmeg, toasted sesame seed and additional spices that linger on the fresh finish." - Wine Spectator
