Kistler Hudson Vineyard Chardonnay 2003


SKU C0105


Our vineyards are meticulously farmed, in order to produce wines of intense focus, and natural balance. The Hudson Vineyards are located in the southwestern reaches of Napa County, where a rare mix of volcanic and marine sediment soils meet to produce a wine of depth and elegance, often touched with high pitched tones of iodine, and an oyster shell like minerality.

Wine AdvocateThe 2003 Chardonnay Hudson E-Block has crisp acidity and a big, smoky, hazelnut-scented nose with a hint of ripe pear and various tropical fruits such as pineapple and mango. It is a traditional California Chardonnay with the oak well-integrated and the acidity zesty, giving uplifting vibrancy.
