Food Pairings for Hudson Vineyards Chardonnay Carneros
Warm days during harvest accelerated ripeness and concentrated flavor and acidity even more. The resulting fruit was plump in loose clusters and ultra flavorful. The chardonnay was picked in four lots over six days Sept 5th to 11th, including two heritage selections form the core of the blend, with smaller amounts of Calera selection and Clone 95 for added minerality and complexity. We increased the use of new oak to 100% to balance the extra concentration and acidity of the vintage. The chardonnay was gently whole cluster pressed directly to new French burgundy barrels (Francois Frères and Damy Cooperages) where the fermentation by the indigenous yeasts took place. This “wild” yeast fermentation took 4-12 months to finish in the barrel with the malolactic fermentation finishing before the primary in most barrels. This long ferment protects the wine from oxidation and vastly increases the complexity of the finished wine.
