2019 Hudson Vineyard Carneros Chardonnay

The Hudson Vineyard runs along a northern stretch of Carneros soils that are thin and rocky. As a result, these 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 2019 Hudson is an enticing elixir of quince preserves, fresh almond, beeswax candle, apple turnover, and wet stone embellished with hints of musk rose and lavender honey. The concentrated palate is draped in white stone fruits, and its glycerin texture is braced by an exquisite mineral underpinning. This wine has more to reveal and will cellar confidently for 10-15 years. The wine is slightly hazy showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.
