2008 Patz & Hall Chardonnay Hudson Vineyard Carneros
Striking a balance between elegant and super-rich, this is a great vintage for our Hudson Vineyard – Carneros Chardonnay, and one of the standouts of the growing season. The aromas are bright and pure, with exuberant notes of pineapple, peach and pear. On the palate, this wine continues revealing its vibrant nature with more sophisticated layers of poached pear, spice cake, caramel apple ginger and clove, supported by lovely density and a creamy mouthcoating texture.
BackgroundLee Hudson founded Hudson Vineyard in the 1980s when he purchased the land to stop it from becoming a condominium development. This act of conservation and generosity has resulted in a phenomenal vineyard. In fact, Hudson Vineyard is widely considered one of the grand cru sites in Carneros. We are fortunate to share a prized block of this amazing vineyard with Lee himself.
