2017 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 2017 Hudson is the pinnacle of Carneros Chardonnay. The aromas are a compelling elixir of lemon meringue, orchard fruit, wet stone, lime powder, orange blossom honey, and allspice. The palate is vibrant and full-bodied with layers of citrus oils and baked apple tart. Enjoy over the next 10 to 15 years. The wine has a slight haziness showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
