Top 10 Chardonnays over £20

4. Patz & Hall Wine Company: Hyde Vineyard, Carneros Chardonnay 2011

Patz & HallFounded in 1988, Patz & Hall has since built up an enviable reputation for its single vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines, which are produced in tandem with a collection of experienced Californian growers.

Among these is Larry Hyde, one of California’s most respected viticulturalists, whose other ventures include the Hyde de Villaine collaboration with Aubert de Villaine of Domaine de la Romanée Conti.

Patz & Hall has been working with Hyde since 1990 and launched its first single vineyard wines from his 179-acres Carneros vineyard in 1996.

Although the brand adopts a consistent winemaking model across the various Chardonnays in its portfolio, this house style aims to provide a secure base from which to show off “the voice of each vineyard and vintage”.
