Winemaker Notes: “This wine is near and dear to our hearts. It is the first wine ever produced under the Hudson label since 2004, and we have made it every year since. The all-estate vineyard sources for this stunning 2021 are Little Bit, Ladybug, North Seashell & Good Hand. The 2021 Chardonnay showcases a combination of 4 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.”
FMW 97 Points: The 2021 Hudson Estate Chardonnay is a lush, deep, and concentrated youngster that wows you from the start. 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.
