Vidal Reserve Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Light and fresh on the nose with notes of mineral water, cactus leaf, spicy toasted oak and a hint of vanilla cream. This is nicely focused in the mouth, lean and fresh in a very drinkable style. The palate shows a nicely measured vanilla top note over fresh apple fruit, with a lithe texture. Elegant and fairly easy right through the finish, which is a touch drying and firm. 88pts
