Midalidare's brand of the same name honors 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. The Midalidare brand presents the remarkable features of the area in combination with the varietal characteristics of the grapes. The Midalidare are terroir wines expressing the specifics of the varieties, individually or in blend. The charm of this series is visually supported by the beautiful monochrome wine labels: each varietal or blended wine has its own unique color.
One of the audience's favorite, the fascinating Red Label, is the first red wine of the 2018 vintage. A classic Bordeaux blend - Cabernet Franc and Merlot, typical of the so-called "Right bank" in the great French wine region but produced in the opposite proportion by Midalidare: Midalidare Merlot & Cabernet Franc. The wine presents with great expressiveness the terroir of the village of Mogilovo: a magnificent fruity character, full-bodied wine with elegant tannins and an exceptional balance between aroma and taste. Each variety undergoes traditional for Midalidare vinification: cold soak, alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel vats and post-maceration. The wine is aged in oak barrels for 10-12 months, blending and bottling follows.
Midalidare Merlot & Cabernet Franc 2018 reveals an intense, deep ruby red color with light red highlights. Spicy and attractive, the nose is fruity with a pronounced spicy nuance, a finely hinted oak tone and a bouquet of fruity aromas of ripe cherries and plums, mulberries, blueberries and raisins. Elegant, juicy and perfectly balanced in the mouth, with well-integrated tannins, the wine predisposes and refreshes with a sense of ripe berries, raisins and aromatic spices. The finish is spicy and very long, with a memorable fruity aftertaste.
