Anthony Joseph Vidal 1888 Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay 2014 $120 (5 stars)

The rumours were out that winemaker Hugh Crichton was planning to release something epic in the Vidal chardonnay stakes, and lordy, they were right.  From the most glorious chardonnay vintage Hawke’s Bay has seen in a stretch, comes a formidably gorgeous wine scented with popcorn, gunflint and grilled grapefruit and offering gracefully ripe, roasted stonefruit, soft, caramelized oak characters and a veil of creamy, nutty, spice-edged notes.  Beautifully built, beautifully balanced and would look beautiful in your cellar.
