2020 Vidal Reserve Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

2020 Vintage is next level!

In 1888 a young Spaniard by the name of Anthony Vidal arrived here to join his Uncle, Joseph Soler - one of NZ’s pioneering vintners of the time. Together they converted wild and undeveloped landscapes into some of our greatest vineyards using techniques from their homelands. Anthony eventually decided to go it alone, and began a quest to find suitable land that would reflect the continental style he preferred. He found that in Hastings Hawke’s Bay and set up Vidal Wines in 1905. Over 100 years later Anthony Vidal is a household name... his approach is still used today to produce unique, terroir driven wines from outstanding sites…like these two stunning examples. Offering outstanding value for money, both these wines from the Reserve range offer 100% Hawke’s Bay fruit beautifully crafted by Twice NZ Winemaker of the year “Hugh Crichton”. Vidal Reserve Chardonnay 2018 is made from fruit off legendary single vineyards such as Keltern, Te Awanga, Omahu Gravels and Ohiti. From the exceptional 2018 vintage the wine is aged on lees for 10 months in French barriques.

Description

One of the greatest value Chardonnays in New Zealand, overseen by master winemaker Hugh Crichton in the impressively equipped Hawkes Bay Villa Maria winery where every tool both modern and traditional are at your disposal. Always overdelivering... this 2020 has gone next level again… only the best grapes are picked from Vidal’s old-vine vineyards including the legendary Keltern. It is fermented with ‘wild’ yeast and barrel aged with regular lees stirring. After 10-months of oak maturation (20% new) it is bottled under this Reserve label... the only thing non reserve about this Chardonnay... is its incredibly low everyday price! We suggest... you should shop with a mixture of confidence and strong expectation when buying Vidal Reserve Chardonnay. It will deliver in every way!

Smells
Ripe nectarine, biscuit, vanilla spice, a hint of smoke, plus pink grapefruit rounding out the enticing aromas.

Tastes
Concentrated with classic Hawke's Bay stone fruit infused with seductive biscuit, nutty and smoky tastes. The mouth feel is creamy throughout and buoyed on the lengthy finish with a burst of grapefruit and mineral freshness. Superb Chardonnay, dramatically underpriced for its quality, enjoy now to 2025+ with poultry and pork dishes.
