(Consulting Winemaker- J.Kongsgaard)
Overview of the Wine
Hudson Ranch lies in Napa Valley’s Carneros District, one of the finest winegrowing regions in the world. The cooling breezes off the Bay of San Francisco allow the grapes a longer hang time in which to develop flavor and intensity, without sacrificing acidity and true balance.
For forty years Hudson has foraged heritage selections of chardonnay from historic vineyards throughout California. These carefully chosen selections have been propagated on our ranch in an effort to honor diversity. We prize these grapes for their intense mineralogy and distinctive flavor. We feel our wines represent the most honest representation of our site, intent and endeavor.
Grape / Blend
The elegant 2019 Estate Chardonnay shows the softness that came with a moderate vintage. Lovely notes of stone fruit, particularly apricot, lemon, and an orange creamsicle finish make for a very complete and pleasurable experience.
93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard sings of fresh grapefruit, white peaches and nutmeg with hints of lemongrass and lime blossoms. Medium-bodied with elegant stone fruit layers and a satiny texture, it finishes with a spicy lift.
