Vidal of Hawke's Bay Reserve Chardonnay 2014
Lots of modern wine making here with a flinty mineral beginning then white peach, lemon and fresh cashew; lots of energy and vibrancy with a floral lift. On the palate - dry, fresh, crisp and modern with citrus and white stone fruit flavors, moderate oak flavor, but mostly texture; and a fine flinty mineral suggestion. This wine is all about texture and palate impact. Works for me!
