Vidal of Hawkes Bay Reserve Chardonnay 2016 (Hawkes Bay)
Full title - Anthony Joseph Vidal of Hawkes Bay
Lovely bouquet with fresh, ripe white fleshed fruits – apple and citrus, white and some yellow peach, some sulphides add a flinty-like layer; medium+ complexity. On the palate – the complexity continues with a tension and poise, flavours of citrus especially return then white peach, oak spices and flintiness; balanced, fresh, youthful and dry with an intriguing complexity and finish. Drink from late 2018 through 2026.
