Downlaod Tech sheet

The combination of climate and soil conditions in Mogilovo is remarkable and has great influence over vineyards’ development. After the wonderful reviews and the warm welcome of Silver Angel as well as the exceptional features of Sauvignon Blanc, it was time to introduce the genuine terroir. Midalidare Sauvignon Blanc Premium Selection expresses the characteristics of Mogilovo in combination with the exceptional style of Midalidare. A Single Vineyard wine, made from the finest grapes of Shipkata vineyard, Premium Selection is a representative of the aromatic, grassy and herbaceous Sauvignons, blended with an intense citrusy sensation and a magnificent mineral finish.

Viticulture

The plants are of French and Italian origin with average age 6 years. The orientation of rows is East-West, with southern exposure. The forming is single vertical shoot positioning (VSP or single guyot), the density is 5000 plants per hectare. The yield is controlled at 9-10 ton/ha. Regulation of production, e.g., green pruning is made when the height of the shoots is 15-20 cm. Also, important viticultural practice is de-leafing the vines on the non-sun exposed side in the afternoons and stimulate formation of leaf mass on the sun-exposed side.

Tasting notes

Midalidare Sauvignon Blanc Premium Selection reveals shiny pale yellow colour with stel-gray hints. Attractive, firm, varietal citrus nose dominated by ripe lemon and fresh grass with subtle herbal notes of nettle and elderberry. Intensive on the palate with great balance and emphatic freshness. This Sauvignon Blanc is medium-bodied wine with long citrusy finish and lingering mineral aftertaste.

Winemaking notes

The harvest for Midalidare Sauvignon Blanc Premuim Selection takes place in the early mornings, in mid-September. Machine and hand-picked grapes are carried out with 10-12 kg boxes.

After immediate 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 finest selection of Sauvignon Blanc grapes is sent by gravity for gentle pressing. A cold soak takes place for 24 hours in order to allow aromas from the skin to penetrate the grape juice. The grapes are than strained and delicately pressed into stainless steel vats. Clarification for a few days preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation for about 20 days at controlled temperature. Upon finishing the fermentation, the wine is cooled and kept on the lees for four months, batonnage is carried out if necessary. Filtration, clarification, blending and bottling complete the winemaking process.
