2015 Hudson Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay

The Hudson Vineyard runs along a northern stretch of Carneros soils that are thin and rocky. As a result, these 20-year-old vines struggle to produce even the most modest of crops.  After a long, 10 year wait to join the Hudson fraternity, we are pleased to be working with a grower who shares with us a common vision and dedication to quality. It was worth the wait.

Mark Aubert’s Tasting Notes

The 2015 Hudson Vineyard Chardonnay smells of golden apple juice, white pepper, ginger snaps, and a bucolic note of hay. The wine is wonderfully ripe and satisfying with a glycerin mouthfeel. Flavors expand to pear sauce, flinty minerality and marzipan. This is Carneros Chardonnay at its most serious. Enjoy over the next 10 to 15 years. The wine has a slight haziness showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
