Mira Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard 2014

A world class chardonnay direct from Napa Valley, our Hyde Vineyard Chardonnay at first reveals very subtle aromas that only begin to fully reveal themselves after some interaction in the glass. Honey, pineapple and peach transform into apple, guava and citrus leaf aromas. On the palate the gorgeous interplay of the wines acidity and honey flavors meld into a delicate and long mineral tinged with chamomile finish. Decant this wine to delve deeper into this wine’s complexity.

Tasting Notes

Vineyard Notes
Located in the Los Carneros AVA in Napa Valley, Hyde Vineyard’s East facing slopes provide ideal sun exposure when paired with the cool coastal winds that blow from San Pablo Bay through Carneros. Considered one of the superstar vineyards of the Napa Valley, the grapes from this location are perfect for crafting our single vineyard Chardonnay.
Vintage Notes
Vintage 2014 is best remembered as the year of the big, Napa centered earthquake. This occurred in August, at a time most wineries are preparing to receive fruit if they haven’t already done so. Though wineries were impacted, the vineyards themselves suffered no damage. The months leading to harvest showed a drought tendency, with the 2013/14 season being one of the driest on record. Though rainfall was about half of normal, we received quite a bit of rain in February and March, enough to hold us over for the rest of the season. The warm spring and dry summer resulted in smaller grapes, which typically means a higher degree in flavor concentration. Nature gave us an unexpected bounty in 2014, however another excellent vintage.
