Winemaker Clayton Kirchhoff did it again! Another stunning, very Burgundian-like Hudson Chardonnay was produced! If this vineyard were to be in Burgundy, it would definitely have Premier-Cru status! Lee Hudson is probably one of the best, if not the best wine grower in the valley. Many great wineries (Kongsgaard, Aubert, Kistler, etc.) have been sourcing from this vineyard for decades!
Winery Notes: “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 cream-sicle finish make for a very complete and pleasurable experience. Enjoy now for the next 10-12 years.”
The 2019 Hudson is deep, and concentrated. The wine’s bold aromas jump out of the glass. On the palate you’ll encounter lush viscosity and tantalizing richness. The wine is loaded with bold flavors of lemon confit, marzipan, fresh cut flowers , chamomile and almonds. This Chardonnay is very statuesque and over delivers from start to finish. This 2019 Hudson Estate Chardonnay is especially fine, offering lush and pure fruit flavors that are remarkable. The wine is full-bodied, the palate is multilayered, with tons of mineral sparks accenting the opulent fruit, and the long, decadent and long lingering crisp finish.
