2015 Hudson Vineyard ChardonnayJoin To Purchase
Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard opens with profound notions of pink grapefruit, pear tart and green mango with touches of pie crust, almond paste, orange blossoms and honeycomb. Medium to full-bodied, it completely coats the palate with satiny textured tropical and citrus fruits, featuring loads of savory accents and a long, uplifting finish.
The weight and power of the vintage really come through in the 2015 Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard, and yet the wine doesn't feel quite put together just yet. Even so, there is good depth and creaminess to the tropically-leaning flavors, along with that super-classic hint of matchstick reduction that is such a signature of Hudson Chardonnays. In this tasting, the Hudson is a bit awkward. I would give it another 6-12 months in bottle.
