Wild Arc Farm Hudson River Chardonnay
Natural Chardonnay from Todd Cavallo. 2017 Chardonnay was the sleeper hit of the vintage, and the few remaining bottles are showing better and better. Don’t sleep on this one, Jura meets NY as oxidative and reductive tendencies meet, and fruit and mineral notes clash to make a Chardonnay that is a joy to drink.
Peach, apricot, and a whisper of tropicalia with some wet stone backing up the nose. Broad and mouth-filling with some richness and texture, but still an acid streak to make you want another sip immediately.
