Chardonnay, Hudson Vineyard 2011

32 Winds Wines

The color is brilliant gold, immediately attractive from the first glimpse of it in the glass. The nose comes across rich and yet fresh all at once, with aromas of baked apples, baking spices, and a crushed-sea-shell-like minerality. On the palate, the wine shows flavors of Fuji apple, lemon peel, and warm baking spices. The firm acidity, just the right touch of oak combines with a touch of grape tannin to frame the fruit and give the wine great structure. The finish is long and persistent with a pleasant spiciness lingering for several seconds. This is a really delicious Chardonnay and a sure standout of the 2011 vintage. A testament to the fact that great winemakers make great wines, even in tough vintages. This is another classic from Lee Hudson.
