2016 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 terroir-driven 2016 Hudson is the quintessence of Carneros Chardonnay. The nose intrigues with notes of flinty crushed gravel, white flower, candle wax, shortbread, and lemon confit. Textured layers of orchard fruit oil complement the elegant richness and full body of the palate. Enjoy over the next 10 to 15 years. This wine has a slight haziness showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
