The 2017 Native Yeast Chardonnay is a selection from one of the most prized blocks on the estate. Fermenting with native yeast from the vineyards gives the wine a unique mouth feel and heightens the expression of the Hyde Old Wente clone. It shows the special mineral characteristics that are the signatures of a cool climate.
By nose, Tahitian lime flower, fresh herbs and warm wet earth. By mouth, minerality, bright and light with tropical guava and honeydew flavors that refreshingly linger.
