Vidal Reserve Syrah 2019

13% abv

Fragrant background spice, red berry and floral notes combine on a flavoursome, refreshing and finely textured palate. This perfumed and balanced wine will continue to develop over time and is best enjoyed with food.

Naturally, free draining and low vigour soils, meticulous vineyard management and the 2019 season produced grapes with intense varietal character, depth and clarity of flavour. Naturally low yields and “green harvesting” has resulted in good fruit concentration balanced with fresh natural acidity, typical of our region and wines

Individual vineyard parcels were harvested, destemmed, lightly crushed and fermented as small batches in open-top fermenters. During ferment, the batches were gently plunged and pumped over on skins to extract desirable tannin, flavour and colour. The wines were then pressed off and run to French oak barrels where they completed malolactic fermentation. After resting in barrel for 12 months (14% new and balanced seasoned), the batches were lightly egg white fined, naturally settled, blended and gently filtered before bottling.

Vidal produce wines in a classical way, but without the old-world prescription and control through appellation systems.

They have the ability to search for small changes that can improve quality whether that be in the vineyard or winery, ultimately, with the aim for the wines to reflect the vineyards and the growing season. Vidal try to achieve transparency in the wines, and are not looking to hide where the wine is from with too much oak, too much tannin or in fact too much of anything. When the wine is dominated by one thing you lose the rest of the detail – this is summed up by the term of balance – they aim for balance in all respects.

The overriding wine style is one of elegance. Vidal look for underlying complexity, fine structure, good natural acidity and not least concentration of flavour, but not in a big, over powering way. The wines tend to be better food wines because they don’t dominate food, rather compliment.
