Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay was the first wine produced under the Ramey Wine Cellars label. Hyde wines are charming and feminine, with high natural acidity playing a prominent role. The Ramey block of Chardonnay was planted in 1997 and 1999.
The 2018 season was exemplary. Higher cluster counts than the low yielding years of 2015-2017, coupled with cooler late summer temperatures, brought longer hang times with harvest dates up to two weeks later than the previous vintage.
