Midalidare's brand of the same name honours the nature and climate conditions typical of the village of Mogilovo. Part of the company's wine philosophy is to grow only grape varieties suitable for the winery's unique terroir. Midalidare brand represents the remarkable features of the area in combination with the varietal characteristics of the grapes, individually or blended. The charm of this series is visually supported by the beautiful monochrome wine labels: each varietal or blended wine has its own unique colour.

Brilliant yellow colour represents the powerful and spicy Cabernet Sauvignon & Petit Verdot blend.

Viticulture

The vines are of French origin, at average age of 14 years. The forming is double vertical shoot positioning (VSP or double guyot), the density is approximate 4000 plants per hectare. Regulation of production is twofold - the first operation is always done when the height of the shoots is 15-20 cm. The second regulation is made when the bunches start to change color, in the veraison period, depending on the variety.

Tasting notes

Deep, vibrant, dark ruby color. Intensive, spicy bouquet with aromas of cranberries, gooseberries, and black cherries, embraced by notes of black and green pepper, green coffee, and subtle eucalyptus tone. Midalidare Cabernet Sauvignon & Petit Verdot is a powerful, very spicy medium to full-bodied wine with strong tannins. The taste is dominated by ripe berries and elegant oak. The finish is spicy, with a long aftertaste.

Winemaking notes

The harvest takes place in the early morning. Manually harvested grapes are carried out with 10-12 kg boxes.

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 for 10-20 days in order to obtain maximum coloring substance and fruity flavor from the skin. Gentle warming preceded the yeasts introduction and slow fermentation for 15-25 days at controlled temperature. 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. Midalidare Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot is aged for 10 to 12 months. Rough filtration, blending and bottling complete the process.
