This Chardonnay opens with inviting aromas of honeydew melon, pineapple, and green apple along with hints of beeswax and white chocolate. On the palate, the melon and pineapple notes mingle with peach and nectarine flavors and are lifted by the excellent acidity. This adds poise and length to the wine.
Lee Hudson began his grape growing career when he moved to Napa after attending the viticultural program at U.C. Davis. Lee planted his first vines in what is one of the most wind swept and coldest sites, in the far south-west of Napa, only a few miles from San Pablo Bay. Lee has spent decades refining and elevating his vineyard to become one of the greats in Napa, with some of the most consistently delicious wines in our portfolio.
