The inaugaural release of Soler, a new tier of wines in the Vidal collection, and it is a wine that impresses. Positioned between the superb value Vidal Reserve ($20) and the much lauded Legacy ($60), Soler has filled that gap with ease yet still scores very highly on the quality value ratio. 

Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"This perfumed 100% Cabernet Sauvignon shows classic aromatics of blackcurrant, graphite and savoury oak. Dark fruit, integrated French oak and background dried herbs combine on a finely textured palate showing elegance and length of flavour. An age-worthy wine."

96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, May 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"A bouquet that is slow to reveal it’s story. Aromas do emerge of blackened blackberry, dark plum and fresh cigar tobacco. Marmite and meat, a sweet toasted wood scent accentuated with aromas of clove and vanilla, then dried herb and baked bell-pepper. A complexity unfurls after many minutes in glass. Youthful, tense, firm and dry with flavours reflective of the nose. Abundant fruit and wood tannins with plenty of acidity. Complex, lengthy finish. A wine that should be in your cellar – will age and harmonise over the coming 3-5 years. Ideal drinking 2024 through 2034."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Offering fine value, the debut 2017 vintage was estate-grown in the Gimblett Gravels and matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (45 per cent new). Still very youthful, with dark, purple-flushed colour, it is mouthfilling and tightly structured, but not austere, with concentrated blackcurrant, plum and spice flavours, seasoned with nutty oak, and a welcoming fragrance. An elegant, rich, finely balanced red, it's well worth cellaring to 2022+."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Gorgeously fruited and classically expressed, the wine shows cassis, dark plum, olive and cedar characters with a touch of tobacco complexity on the nose. The palate is concentrated and brilliantly focused, delivering delectable fruit flavours together with elegant oak infusion, backed by chalky tannins. At its best: now to 2027."
