Vidal - Legacy Series Syrah 2009 - New Zealand Red Wine 75cl Bottle
75cl Bottle £30.76 In Stock
Description: Limited stock.
This was an outstanding Gimblett Gravels vintage.
A warm, dry season defined by an extended maturation period and drier than long term average conditions allowed the
harvest of fruit at optimal flavour, balance and condition.
Fruit for this wine was grown entirely in the Gimblett Gravels grape growing district where the soil is made up of relatively recent alluvial deposits of gravel with varying degrees of silt and sand. These naturally free-draining, low vigour, lean sites combined with meticulous vineyard management and the long, warm growing season of 2009 have produced a wine of international standard showing intensity, texture and depth of flavour.

Vidal wines are made with food in mind and a passion for sharing with great food and good friends. The story began when Anthony Joseph Vidal journeyed from Spain to New Zealand in 1905 where he purchased a Hawkes Bay stable yard and set about converting it into a cellar and winery. It was from there he became one of New Zealand's early wine innovators.
Family-owned until the 1970's, Vidal was purchased in 1976 by George Fistonich who has consistently built on Vidal's reputation as a quality wine producer ever since. In 1979 Vidal opened New Zealand's first winery restaurant where Anthony's passion for good food and good wine lives on today and is celebrated by the flame on every bottle of wine.
The Vidal winemaking philosophy focuses on minimal intervention from vineyard site to bottle. The result is a collection of award-winning and highly acclaimed wines which are true to their roots and exhibit the perfect combination of balance, concentration and complexity.
