Anthony Joseph Vidal of Hawkes Bay 1888

Anthony Joseph Vidal Kokako Vineyard 1888 Chardonnay 2016 Hawkes Bay

Tasted over two days the bouquet and palate of this wine develop into a fine example of Chardonnay, Hawkes Bay and fine wine making. Aromas of a gun flint and grapefruit peel, apple and lemon, white peach and oak wood. Dry, youthful and expressive with tart citrus and white fleshed stone fruit flavours then ripe red apple and sweet vanilla oak. Great texture and length, balanced and well made. A Premier Cru Chablis style. Drink now and through 2026.
