Hudson Vineyards Chardonnay 2020
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Carneros|
The 2020 Chardonnay showcases a combination of 5 distinct blocks from the Hudson Estate planted to Heritage Shot Wente clone. We hand select barrels from each site to create a Chardonnay that fully expresses the elegant and balanced style of Hudson Vineyards. The wine is rich with bright acidity and mouthwatering notes of citrus, stone fruit, and brioche.
Stunning, showing a generous and smooth mix of vibrant, juicy fruit with lemon curd, peach and Fuji apple, hints of dried tarragon, a touch of sea salt on ripe melon and a smidge of buttery pastry on the long finish. Drink now through 2028. 1,080 cases made.
A fragrant nose of green olive, lemon grass, dried lime and subtle ground spice. Medium-to full-bodied and creamy. Nicely structured, with a hint of tannin helping to steady the well-ripened fruit across the palate. A zesty undertone here. Bright, but nicely mature. Drink or hold.
