Vidal Legacy Chardonnay 2015 (Hawke’s Bay)
This new Legacy release is a typically out-there, proud, beautifully crafted wine with a glittering career ahead of it. It offers plenty of smoky, flinty aromatic intrigue, and backs that up with generous spicy fruit, creamy texture and great length. It’s a big, energetic wine with personality-plus. In a word: fabulous.
