Chardonnay, De La Guerra, Carneros – 2013 – 4+ stars – Restaurant Wine
4 points

“HdV has steadily improved its wines in recent years. The 2013 De la Guerra Chardonnay is the best yet. It is full bodied, supple in texture, and very aromatic, with intense character (pineapple, peach, lemon, apple, linden blossom), a touch of oak (toast, vanilla), excellent balance, and a long finish. Fine value. Aged 8 months: 85% in oak barrels, 15% in concrete tanks. 261 cases. 13.8% The Hyde bottling is superb; perhaps the best yet. It is fleshy and rich, yet also refined in character (nectarine, pear, lemon, honey, white pepper) and beautifully balanced, with modest oak character (vanilla, toast), and an unusually long finish. Exceptional. Aged 12 months in French oak barrels, 20% new, and 3 months in stainless steel tanks.”
