The 2018 Hudson is Carneros Chardonnay at its finest. Seductive aromas of lemon confit, stone fruit preserves, and almond croissant ascend from the glass, melding with notions of flinty crushed gravel, apple pie spice, and honeycomb. The palate is textured and full-bodied with layers of orchard fruit oils interlaced with a saline complexity and a bucolic note of sunbaked hay. Balanced and well-proportioned, enjoy this wine over the next 10 to 15 years. The wine has a slight haziness showing our commitment to minimal intervention winemaking.

Coming from Hudson selection, Old Wente clone vines that are over 20 years old and planted on the Napa side of Carneros, the 2018 Chardonnay Hudson opens with profound beeswax, apricot preserves, baked pineapple and musk perfume with hints of waxy lemons, almond croissant and a waft of cedar. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited, it has layer upon layer of savory/stone-fruit-sweet and tropical fruit notions, framed by bold freshness and a creamy texture, finishing very long.

The 2018 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard is another superb wine in this range. Unctuous and creamy, with striking freshness, the Hudson has so much to offer. White pepper, mint, orchard fruit and lemon confit are all given an extra kick of intensity in this racy, beautifully layered Chardonnay from Aubert.
