From the excellent 2019 Gimblett Gravels vintage. We tasted this at the Vidal winery with then winemaker Hugh Crichton and were rather impressed. Hugh commented at the time that this was the wine he was going to tell his friends to buy as much as possible as the quality of the fruit was simply outstanding. Move forward 2 years and we can offer this to you at a winery clearance price of just $11.99. Buy a case and enjoy over the next few years.
Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"In keeping with our Estate’s small batch winemaking philosophy, blocks were harvested, fermented and matured in individual batches to capture the uniqueness of each parcel. Gently crushed grapes were fermented and macerated on skins before being pressed and matured in tank and seasoned French oak. Malolactic fermentation and 10 months maturation have helped to evolve the wine’s character and flavour while softening the tannins.
This classic blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and a small parcel of Malbec displays aromas of red fruits, cedar and dried herbs with flavours of plum and blackcurrant. The smooth finish on the palate is supported by supple, approachable tannins."
