The term „terroir“ adds a romantic flavor to any wine story. But in fact, this enchanting whiff is not just a gift, and besides requiring hard work, it is constantly in motion. And it is this hard work that transforms nature’s gifts into a unique terroir and makes the wine "terroir wine".
Shipkata vineyard is situated on hilly terrain with 10% slope. The average altitude is 290-310 metres above sea level. An important feature is the East-West exposure of the vines. The design of Shipkata vineyard was made with a view to the types of wine Midalidare envisages to produce: a good body with strong aroma. So, the choice of planting the vines is not random. In fact, the East-West orientation is able to protect the bunches from the strong radiation of the afternoon summer sun, without altering - due to direct exposure to the sun - the aromatic complexes concentrated in the skin of the grapes.
Terroir of Shipkata vineyard is extremely suitable for Syrah, Petit Verdot, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier. Nevertheless, each terroir has its stars: varieties that not only adapt but seem to influence the natural gifts and with each subsequent vintage stand out with their development. Wines were created of these exceptional varieties. And just a mouthful of these wines takes you on an exciting journey and tells a story of the unique terroir.
