Hudson Vineyards Chardonnay Carneros 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine has the classic nose of the site; the “Batard Montrachet” of Carneros. A great focused nose that while initially resistant opens to aromas of corn silk, hazelnuts and dried citrus fruit. The wine evokes images of breed and sophistication, minerals and open air. The palate is not as broad as the 2006, insomuch as it has a more forward drive while still being luscious. The oily texture is balanced with remarkable acidity and freshness. Salted nuts, brioche and lemon orange peel all come in waves of flavor. Most noticeably, it has a finish that lasts and lasts and lasts. This wine will pair exceptionally well with Roasted sea bass, with a side of creamed corn and pumpkin seeds and will flourish when opened in 2010-2015.
