Vineyard Notes
Recently identified by the Wall Street Journal as one of “the five California vineyards you need to know,” Hyde Vineyard is the superstar of the Los Carneros region of Napa Valley. Larry Hyde began planting in what would become Hyde Vineyard in 1979. Recognizing the ideal conditions of East facing slopes, sun exposure and coastal influence, his experiments with vine row orientation, rootstock and clonal selection has resulted in a vineyard able to produce some of the finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, while also producing stellar Syrah and other less common Napa Valley varieties. Recognized as “The Wise Man of Carneros” by Wine Spectator, it is no wonder grapes from this vineyard are so strongly sought after and Mira is proud to produce more varietals from Hyde Vineyard than any other producer.
Vintage Notes
2015 is the vintage in which drought was on everyone’s mind. Rainfall the previous vintages was minimal at best and 2015 was very dry for most of the State. However, thanks to some early season rains, Napa Valley received 75% of normal rainfall. Thanks also to cool temperatures during the growing season the demand for water was kept to a minimum. These cool temperatures also contributed to uneven fruit set which resulted in much lower than average yields. Sugar accumulation was also slightly ahead of flavor development and so we harvested most varieties with more sugar than in the previous vintages. Small vintages typically result in more concentrated wines and 2015 is no exception. We just have much less of it in 2015.
Winemaker's Notes
Calera clone. Four day cold maceration followed by 15 days of fermentation. A combination of daily pigeage and pumpovers during time on the skins maxing out at a fermentation temperature of 88°F. 20 days total vat time followed by malolactic fermentation in barrel. Aged for 24 months in 100% new French oak barrels.
