Cracka Review

Here we have another well priced, highly sippable wine from EnZed producer Vidal. It's a soft, smooth, slinky drink that shows juicy plums and red berries on the nose and palate, along with some licks of cedar and cinnamon spice. Gentle tannins and friendly acidity complete the package of this great value red.

Winemaker's Notes

Aromas of this classic blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Cabernet Franc from the outstanding 2014 vintage displays rich aromas of red fruits and spice. With flavours of plum, blackcurrant and cedar, the smooth finish on the palate is supported by supple, approachable tannins.

Winemaking: In keeping with Vidal’s small batch winemaking philosophy, blocks were harvested, fermented and matured in individual batches to capture the uniqueness of each parcel. The grapes were fermented and macerated on skins before being pressed and matured in tank and barrel (15% new French Oak). Individual parcels underwent malolactic fermentation and 15 months maturation before bottling to evolve the wine’s character and flavour while softening the tannins.
