FAMOUS VINEYARDS… SUPERB WINEMAKING… SENSATIONAL 2020 VINTAGE

Incredible Chardonnay at $14.99

2020 was a sensational Hawkes Bay vintage… gifted winemaking by Hugh Crichton using fruit from famous vineyards like Keltern = outstanding quality at $14.99

Hugh Crichton has twice previously been voted “NZ Winemaker of the year”. Vidal Reserve has for a long time been at the cutting edge of quality versus price in the sub $20 Chardonnay category. 2020 was a sensational vintage in the Hawkes Bay and when you can draw on fruit from several famous Hawkes Bay Chardonnay vineyards including “Keltern” and have a gifted winemaker like Hugh Crichton crafting the wine… you end up with quality, complexity, age ability and delicious drinkability that you’ve likely never experienced before at just $14.99 bottle.

Always overdelivering... this 2020 has gone next level again… only the best grapes are picked from Vidal’s mature 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!

The wine…

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

Special vintage… Special vineyards… outstanding winemaking and a Special price of $14.99… a rare combination! All the stars are aligned in this 2020 Vidal Reserve Chardonnay. At $14.99 you’re normally looking for a Chardonnay to drink regularly that is hopefully balanced and palatable… and not expecting to buy one that is of such quality and complexity that it could age beautifully for 5-years with ease. My tip… buy a case to enjoy in the coming months and a case to stash away and enjoy as it evolves into a richer, rounder wine through 2023-2025… with hindsight you’ll be elated you did! Enjoy, Jeff
