On the nose, our 2018 Tragically Vidal shows the tropical notes of previous vintages, but it leans more towards the orchard fruit spectrum, with a sprinkling of orange blossom and honeysuckle. Ripe stone fruit, pineapple, melon, dried mango and candied ginger. A lush and generous mouthfeel, with an abundance of bright acidity to balance the gentle nudge of residual sugar.

Production Notes
Our Estate-grown Vidal was destemmed, lightly crushed, and gravity transferred to membrane press, where the juice was gently pressed and pumped into a stainless steel tank. After settling for 24 hrs, the clarified juice was racked and transferred into stainless steel tank before being inoculated with a select yeast culture. It enjoyed a long, slow, cool ferment, preserving as much of the aromatics as possible, before being arrested prior to sugar dryness by chilling the wine to 0°C. As we have come to do over the last few vintages of Tragically Vidal, we blended a small portion of our Orange Muscat into it, further boosting the aromatics, and giving the wine a slightly more floral direction.
