Every tradition was once an innovation. We created something new, but also old; traditional and yet modern; something exciting and different, but still like Midalidare.

We blended the two most beloved varieties that never cease to excite with their exceptional development in Mogilovo: Syrah - the embodiment of the aristocracy among wine varieties, and Malbec - the forgotten giant, revived by the New World. We added already bottled old vintage Syrah and even older vintage Malbec.

Thus, Multi-vintage was born - an innovation to turn into a future tradition.


Syrah and Malbec vines are at average age of 13 years. The forming is double vertical shoot positioning (VSP or double guyot), the density is 4320 plants per hectare. The yield is controlled at 7 ton/ha. Regulation of production is twofold -the first operation is always done when the height of the shoots is 15-20 cm. Only one shoot per bud is left. This creates spaces suitable for the growth of the shoots, more air circulation. The second regulation is made when the bunches start to change color, in the veraison period, 1-2 times for Syrah and 2-3 times for Malbec. The evaluation is done carefully every year. Excess and low-quality bunches are eliminated in order to obtain a correct plant production.

Tasting notes

Vivid, dense ruby-red color with light violet shades. The intense, gorgeous multi-layered bouquet reveals intriguing fruity aromas of blueberries and ripe plums, enhanced by a jammy tone of black cherry jam and pronounced spicy notes of black pepper and aromatic spices. Gentle natural chocolate and a hint of smoked meat and vanilla complete the nose and spill over into the palate. Midalidare Multi-vintage is a powerful, yet elegant and fresh wine, with a full body and soft tannins. Balanced and juicy in the mouth, with a fruity finish and a long spicy aftertaste.

Winemaking notes

The harvest for Multi-vintage, for all vintages takes place in the early mornings, in the second half of October for Syrah and the last couple of days in October for Malbec. The grapes are hand-picked and are carried out with 10-12 kg boxes.

Vinification of all vintages and both varieties is carried out under the technology of Midalidare’s Grand Vintage brand winemaking. After 24-hour cooling the grapes are carefully double sorted by hand. At first the whole clusters are sorted and after being destemmed, the second sorting of the grapes is carried out. The fine selection of grapes enters by gravity stainless fermenters whose shape resemble an open wooden vat, specially designed by Midalidare. There, at controlled temperature, cold soak takes place in order to obtain maximum coloring substance and fruity flavor from the skin. Gentle warming preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation at controlled temperature. For Syrah grapes small percentage of the blend ferments in new 400-litres French oak barrels and the major part – in stainless steel vats. Opposite is valid for Malbec – a major part of the blend ferments in new 400-litres French oak barrels and the rest – in stainless steel vats. A post maceration is carried out. Then the wine is drained from the fermenters and fed for ageing into 225-litres French oak barrels (barrique). Malolactic fermentation takes place under controlled temperature. The wine is aged for at least 12 months. Rough filtration, blending and bottling complete the process of creation the base blend. Then, step by step, opened bottles of Grand Vintage Syrah 2015 and Grand Vintage Malbec 2013 are added. Midalidare Multi-vintage is not processed prior bottling so it is possible that natural sediment could form during the bottle aging.
