Vidal ‘Reserve’ 2014 Organic Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Marlborough Pinot Noir

Hugh Crichton and the Villa Maria Estate Group have brought the historical Vidal Estate back into the limelight over the last few years. Hugh’s very thoughtful, but strong approach to styles and winemaking, and the succession of three excellent vintages in Hawke’s Bay, especially, will see Vidal Estate continue to shine. The super-premium ‘Legacy’ wines have been extremely successful with the Chardonnay arguably the star, but the Syrah and Bordeaux-varieties are on the same level. As always, the quality achieved with the very top tiers has a flow-on effect into the more affordable ranges. Here’ I review three wines from the ‘Reserve’ range, a 2014 Hawke’s Bay Organic Sauvignon and Chardonnay, and a 2014 Marlborough Pinot Noir.
