Hugh Crichton and Vidal Estate have released a tiny quantity of a super-premium Chardonnay, from a very special parcel of fruit from one of Vidal's famous ‘Legacy’ vineyards. 

 

The wine is named ‘Anthony Joseph Vidal 1888’ in honour of the founder of Vidal Estate, marking the year of his arrival to New Zealand.  The wine comes from the Lyons ‘Love Block’ and is based on clone 15 fruit from vines planted in 1996. The wine, coming from arguably the best Hawke’s Bay vintage, is regarded as the absolute pinnacle of Vidal Estate. Read Raymond Chan's excellent review for more information. 

Each bottle is presented in an exquisite 1888 gift box.

Description
20/20 Raymond Chan: "Medium-full bodied, the palate has immense depth and intensity, but with a finely concentrated heart and elegance and finesse as a feature. The flavours are a complex amalgam of white stonefruits, white florals, flint and minerals, creamy and nutty barrel-ferment notes, and smoky, toasty oak. The mouthfeel is lively with lacy acidity, and is underlined by fruit-driven power providing considerable linearity. The wine carries with excellent energy to a very long, sustained finish of stonefruits, nuts and smoke that lingers forever. This is a superbly concentrated, intense Chardonnay with a complex amalgam of stonefruits, nuts, smoke, flint and minerals on a vibrant, refined and powerful palate and a never-ending finish."
