Bob Campbell just rated this a staggering #4 in Hawkes Bay Syrah — with those above it all priced between $70 and $150! It is always an exceptional Syrah, and one which Jancis Robinson herself once described it as "admirably serious". Released for a mere $20, the remarkable wine is beautifully fine and pure with long flavours of dark and red berry, an umami olive dimension and fine peppery spice adding lift and interest. Lighter-bodied in a classy Northern Rhone style, this red vastly superior value for the cellar or the dinner table.

Its Origins

"Vidal Estate has a history stretching back to 1905 when it was established by Anthony Joseph Vidal who emigrated from Spain in 1888 to work for his uncle Joseph Soler, a pioneering winemaker. Under the ownership of the Villa Maria Estates group, Vidal Estate has grown to become its own identity, making distinctive and very high quality wines. With the stewardship of Hugh Crichton, winemaker since 2006, it can be argued that the wines have never been better." Raymond Chan

What The Critics Say

95/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Quite a dense and complex syrah with plum, dark berry, pepper, subtle floral and nutty oak flavours. The wine is cleverly structured with sugar-coated tannins that provide backbone while offering an appealing silkiness. Excellent value at this price 28 JAN 2020." Drink 2020 – 2026
