Vidal Reserve Chardonnay, Hawke’s Bay

Vidal Reserve Chardonnay, Hawke’s Bay

Juice from gently pressed grapes was partially settled before being racked with light lees to French oak barriques, about 20% new, for fermentation. Following this, some batches went through a malolactic fermentation. The oak barrels were selected to give a subtle flavour adding to the natural complexity gained from an extended maturation on the lees. Beautifully balanced it shows ripe tropical fruit, a complex minerality and elegant finish.
