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

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
