Description

Vidal are one of the leading producers of Chardonnay in the Hawke's Bay, regularly producing award winning blockbusters like their flagship 1888 (as rare as hen's teeth), premium Legacy (only produced in the very best years) and their great value Reserve Chardonnay. This is the second release of the Soler Chardonnay which plugs the mid-tier gap (mid 30's) but equally over delivers in all areas. price, complexity, length and cellar worthiness. Hand-picked Chardonnay from select bunches off the low cropping Kokako vineyard in the Ohiti Valley were wild fermented before 10 months French oak aging (26% new) with regular lees stirring - contributing to the weighty palate and very impressive complexity and length found in this wine. This is a wine that deserves contemplation before devouring in its youth but will equally age gracefully for up to 10 years.

Smells
A very impressive bouquet with layers of white peach, lemon cheesecake, fig, subtle flint and cedar.

Tastes
Weighty, concentrated and complex with notes of ripe tropical and stone fruits, fruit namely peach and nectarine, nuances of grapefruit and hazelnut with lacy acidity providing energy and length. This textural Chardonnay will develop richer, creamier notes with up to a decade of careful cellaring. Drink with soft cheese and contemplate the universe.
