We are very pleased to offer a series of wines that are “nothing short of spectacular”: the brilliant Legacy range from Vidal, a historic winery at the heart of the legendary Hawkes Bay.

 

Established in 1905 by a Spanish immigrant to New Zealand, Vidal has been making great wine for over a century. Their Legacy range was launched in 2010 and represents the very best of their production, only bottled in exceptional years. Matthew Jukes MW calls them “nothing short of spectacular” and they give their Old World counterparts a serious run for their money, at prices that are unbelievably low.

 

The Legacy Reds performed extremely well in 2013, earning scores of up to 98 points from critics across the board. Respected NZ wine critic Sam Kin of Wine Orbit described the Syrah as “spectacularly good” and the Cabernet Merlot as “profound and gloriously compelling." Matthew Jukes singled the reds out as the best of the renowned Gimblett Gravel subregion in 2013 and the Chardonnay 2014 as “the best white wine I’ve tasted all year”. Matthew Jukes has also called winemaker Hugh Crichton “one of the finest and most talented winemakers in the world” - stunning praise that underlines just how good the Legacy wines really are.

 

We tried them for ourselves last week and were seriously impressed. In terms of character, nuance and complexity, each cuvée in the range beautifully echoes its Old World counterpart in Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Northern Rhône. These are elegant, sophisticated and very refined wines that, given the quality in the bottle, offer quite extraordinary value for money.

 

Please note that the stock is in New Zealand and will be arriving in the UK in early 2017.
