Winemaker Note & Critical Acclaim:

#7 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019

Burgundian-style wine without the tropical fruit tones of some California Chardonnays. Hyde Vineyard wines often seem charming and feminine, with high natural acidity playing a prominent role. - Winemaker Note

Precise and powerfully structured, with intense Asian pear, apple and ripe citrus flavors that feature rich, savory notes. Displays concentrated minerality on the spicy and textured finish. Should blossom in the cellar. Best from 2021 through 2025. - 95 Points Wine Spectator

This producer's blocks were planted in 1991 and 1997 to field selections of both Wente and Robert Young clones. Juicy, tight and tension-filled, it is both complex and high-toned in approach, with looming acidity that freshens in tart lemon-peel, grapefruit and tangerine flavors—a classic and elegant wine. - 95 Points Wine Enthusiast

From a vineyard in Carneros, the 2016 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard excels on its purity and finesse. Notes of white flowers, lemon zest, and tart pineapple all flow to a medium to full-bodied Chardonnay that’s classic Ramey with its bright, crisp acidity, good concentration, and balanced style. Drink it over the coming 7-8 years. - 94 Points Jeb Dunnuck

The 2016 Chardonnay Hyde Vineyard comes from blocks of the Hyde vineyard planted in 1991 and 1997. Grapes are fermented in barrel with bâtonnage, then aged in 22% new French oak for 20 months. It has a wonderfully mineral-driven nose of pulverized stone with notions of Greek yogurt, lime peel and spring blossoms plus a soft peachy undertone and toasty suggestion. The palate is medium to full-bodied with flavor layers flooding the mouth: ripe citrus, cream and roasted almonds, finishing long, lively and minerally with great juicy acidity. 1,256 cases produced, to be released in June 2019. - 93 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

About The Producer:

David Ramey started his career in wine with little more than a degree in enology and a dream. Then, after nearly two decades of creating benchmark wines for such California wineries as Matanzas Creek, Chalk Hill, Dominus and Rudd, David Ramey and his wife Carla founded Ramey Wine Cellars in 1996. "Owning one's own winery is the dream of every winemaker," David says, looking back on the path that led him to build his own. It took time, planning, and a profound understanding of how best to bring together all the elements-from the grapes, to the winery materials, and a top-notch team of professionals-to make it all work. Ramey Wine Cellars is located off the town square in the quaint Sonoma County town of Healdsburg. It is a sleek, efficient, no-frills work space dedicated exclusively to making the highest quality wines possible. "In our own winery, we're not distracted, as I had been, by the ongoing and changing needs of an employer," David notes. "At Ramey Wine Cellars, we try to foster a team environment where everybody feels empowered to contribute and make a difference in both winery operations and the wine itself. My hope is to create an atmosphere of great opportunity for all."Owned exclusively by David and his wife Carla, grapes are sourced from vineyards with which David has worked for many years. Their next project will be to purchase land and develop their own vineyards. The winery produces authentic, hand-crafted wines made in an Old World tradition--coupled with New World innovation and California terroir. Consistently rated among the best wines in California, the winery remains committed to Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Syrah as its primary varietals. Winery tours and tastings are available by appointment.
