Vidal of Hawkes Bay ‘Legacy’ Chardonnay 2015
As with previous vintages a bouquet packed with impact from a flinty, varietal and oaky bouquet. The interaction between the use of sulphides and natural barrel fermentation techniques delivers an engaging aroma package and complexity. Flinty, white fleshed fruits, cashew and nutty oak layers. On the palate – dry, textured, layers of fruits and oak interaction with fine tannins and plenty of acidity. Complex and detailed finish. A wine for the long term. Drinkable now as well and through 2030.
