HUDSON CHARDONNAY "ESTATE", CARNEROS 2015
Produced from the “Shot Wente” heritage selection clone and all naturally fermented in French oak, 85% new, where it was aged for 12 months, the 2015 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard reveals intense grapefruit, pineapple and honeysuckle notes with hints of brioche, ginger and shaved almonds. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is bursting with spicy, tropical fruit flavors, framed by plenty of freshness and a satiny texture, finishing with great length and depth. 1,000 cases were made.
NVWE Notes: A knockout Chardonnay, this wine displays Operatic grandeur and beauty from start to finish. The nose layers luxurious scents of tarte tatin, peach pie, orange cream sickle, meringue, pineapple soufflé, nutmeg and other baking spices over a background of vanilla wafer and toasted hazelnut scents. The drama continues on the palate, where layers of baked apple, stone fruits, kumquat marmalade, vanilla pudding, baking spices, honey and toasted nuts surge-forth. The finish is opulent, zesty, intense, lingering yet perfectly food-balanced. Better already than world famous Chardonnays, it should be truly great in another two years. 1000 cases produced.
