Some wine blends are timeless. There are also those created during the "New" wine history. Such is the blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris - a combination of two typical Old World white varieties successfully adapted to the New World of winemaking.

The brand “Synergy” emphasizes the wonderful interaction between Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris at Midalidare. “Synergy” is a blend where two aromatic white varieties complement each other and create the perfect synergy.

Viticulture

The plants are of French and Italian origin with average age of 13 years. 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

Pure, fine yellow colour. An intriguing nose with a bouquet of fruity and floral notes. The aromas of freshly mown grass, ripe lemon and juicy passion fruit are emphasized by the subtle hints of elderberry and boxwood. Midalidare Synergy reveals good structure, excellent balance and elegant freshness. On the palate delicate and subtle aroma of boxwood and citrus stand out. The finish is mineral, with a crispy citrusy aftertaste.

Winemaking notes

The harvest for Midalidare Synergy takes place in the early mornings. 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 grapes are sent by gravity for gentle pressing. A cold soak takes place 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 at controlled temperature. Upon finishing the fermentation, the wine is cooled and kept on the lees for certain period, batonnage is carried out if necessary. Filtration, clarification, blending and bottling complete the winemaking process.
