2019 Vidals Soler Hawkes Bay Chardonnay

5 Stars Cuisine
In stock
A massive discount on this superb Chardy, which just scored 5 stars and a Top Ten postion in the Cuisine Chardonnay tasting — where it beat out more expensive Chardonnays such as the Craggy Gimblett Gravels and the Stonecroft Old Vine. It also scored 93+ from Bob Campbell, Cameron Douglas and Sam Kim's Wine Orbit. The Soler label is being retired by Vidal, hence the massive discount. But it follows the Vidal's style beautifully, with juicy fruit and toasy oak layered with flinty-mineral complexity. An extremely serious Chardy for this one-off discount price!

Its Origins

"Vidal Estate has a history stretching back to 1905 when it was established by Anthony Joseph Vidal who emigrated from Spain in 1888 to work for his uncle Joseph Soler, a pioneering winemaker. Under the ownership of the Villa Maria Estates group, Vidal Estate has grown to become its own identity, making distinctive and very high quality wines. With the stewardship of Hugh Crichton, winemaker since 2006, it can be argued that the wines have never been better." Raymond Chan

What The Critics Say

5 Stars and #5 of Top Ten, Cuisine NZ Chardonnay tasting

"An upfront and confident Hawke’s Bay chardonnay with flint notes, bold spice and stonefruit notes on the nose. All of these provide the perfect opening stanza for what unfolds into a powerfully built, ripe, rich long and vibrant palate with wonderful texture. Cellar three years." Drink 2020 - 2023

94/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"Gorgeously composed and tremendously appealing, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, rockmelon, nougat and roasted nut characters on the nose with a seductive whiff of gun smoke. The palate displays excellent weight and creamy mouthfeel, wonderfully complemented by succulent fruit intensity and discreet oak infusion. At its best: now to 2026. $35.00. www.vidal.co.nz. April 2020." Drink 2020 - 2026

93/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Ripe, yet punchy chardonnay from a very good vintage with a strong struck flint-reductive character adding complexity to peach, tree fruit, citrus and nutty yeast lees characters. An impressive, high-energy wine that promises to develop well in bottle. 24/4/2020." Drink 2020 - 2026
