Overview

Fruit for this wine was sourced from vineyards in the Hawkes Bay region where typically warm and dry conditions dominate the growing season. These conditions combined with free draining soils and low yields allow us to harvest fruit exhibiting purity and ripeness, characters which are expressed in the wine.

In keeping with Vidal’s small batch winemaking philosophy, blocks were harvested, fermented and matured in individual batches to capture the uniqueness of each parcel. The grapes were fermented and macerated on skins before being pressed and matured in tank and barrel where the wines went through malolactic fermentation. Maturation over 16 months has evolved the wine’s character and flavour while softening the tannins.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Anthony Joseph Vidal immigrated to New Zealand from Spain in 1888, initially working for his uncle, pioneer winemaker Joseph Soler in Wanganui. In 1905 he purchased a small amount of land and established the Vidal winery at the present site in Hastings.

Vidal is Hawke’s Bay oldest boutique winery and is also renowned for its award winning brasserie style restaurant, which was the first winery restaurant facility in New Zealand. It has undergone several face lifts since its inception in 1979 and is now a highly sophisticated venue. The addition of wines from the Marlborough region has supported the position of Vidal as a successful winery both in New Zealand and in Vidal's export markets around the world.

A combination of traditional winemaking techniques and modern methods are used to produce the very stylish and modern Vidal Sauvignon Blanc from fruit sourced from vineyards across the Marlborough region.
