MIDALIDARE WINES: FROM MOGILOVO TO NEW ZEALAND


The world is in motion. New horizons are revealed, new dreams are born, new plans are made. It's the same in winemaking, it's the same for Midalidare

We are dreaming, we are chasing our dreams, and we are developing, guided by an unquenchable passion for wine. The story of Midalidare is a story of action that turns dreams into reality.

Our dream took us to the other side of the world, to a magical place with wonderful nature and exceptional wines – New Zealand. We wanted to try something different and challenging, to improve our skills, to gain new knowledge. Thus, the idea of creating wine abroad was born.

There are a number of reasons for Midalidare to choose New Zealand. Over the years, our winemaking team has workedthere, and we have transferred a large amount of our experience to Bulgaria. We have a good knowledge of the region, the terroir, and the specifics of winemaking, as well as many contacts and friends. It is a big challenge to run two campaigns a year, since the harvest in New Zealand starts with the Bulgarian spring. Although on the other side of the world, we found many similarities between Mogilovo and some parts of New Zealand: the terroir, the inspiring nature and the magnificent vineyards. Our passion for Sauvignon Blanc leads straight to a world-renowned Marlborough. Wine production in Bulgaria is still struggling to make its way to international markets, and a wine from New Zealand produced by Bulgarian winemakers would not only enrich our portfolio, but would also contribute to the international promotion and recognition of both Midalidare and Bulgarian wine in general. And last but not least, winemaking there is known not only for exceptional quality and professional work, but also for innovation, breaking with tradition and constant improvement of viticulture and winemaking. This knowledge is extremely valuable to us, as is the opportunity to exchange experiences with New Zealand winemakers.

Like all our projects, we approached this one after careful planning, consideration of the details and painstaking preparation. We chose Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir - the best New Zealand has to offer. Of course, the best grapes come from the best regions - Marlborough and Central Otago. We started with the establishment of Midalidare New Zealand and long-term leases of vineyards in both areas. Viticulture is oriented towards minimal intervention and expression of varietal characteristics. The winemaking is a synergy of New Zealand practices and the philosophy of Midalidare. The wines are produced by Midalidare's winemaking team in shared capacity at the Allan Scott winery and bottled in a state-of-the-art facility.

The central part of Marlborough is locked in between two large rivers - the Wairau and the Awatere. There, in the very heart of the Southern Valleys, lies the Waihopai Valley and Craiglochart Vineyard – the home of Midalidare New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Craiglochart vineyard is situated along the glacial Waihopai River. The unique microclimate, a result of the river influence and surroundings of relatively high hills, the altitude, the incredible temperatures amplitudes, and the specific profile of the soils are the components of an outstanding terroir for Sauvignon Blanc and its expressive characteristics. The vines are planted on a terrace plateau along the river. The soils are of volcanic origin, sandy, medium to highly stony and highly permeable. Although a prerequisite for spring frosts, the extreme temperature amplitudes ensure optimal grapes acidity.

We present Midalidare New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. A wine rich with lime zest, blackcurrant and seabreeze aromas. The citrus and passion fruit flavors are balanced by a salty freshness providing textural crunch and a deliciously long finish.

The Midalidare New Zealand project is still in its infancy. We look forward to the maturation of the Midalidare New Zealand Central Otago “Te Kano” Pinot Noir and the development of our overseas plans. The challenges are always welcome at Midalidare, and we are focused, single-hearted, and consistent in fulfilling our dream.

От Могилово до Нова Зеландия

Светът е в постоянно движение. Разкриват се нови хоризонти, раждат се нови мечти, градят се нови планове. Така е и във винопроизводството, така е и в Мидалидаре. Тук хората не спират да мечтаят, да преследват упорито целите си и да се развиват, водени от нестихваща страст към виното. Историята на Мидалидаре е история на действието, коeто превръща мечтите в реалност.

Нашата мечта ни отведе на другия край на света, в едно вълшебно място с прекрасна природа и изключителни вина – Нова Зеландия. Идеята да създаваме вино в чужбина се роди от желанието ни да опитаме нещо различно и предизвикателно, да усъвършенстваме уменията си, да придобием нови знания.

Нова Зеландия е логичен избор за Мидалидаре по ред причини. През годините целият екип от винари е работил в Нова Зеландия и сме пренесли голяма част от опита си и в България. Имаме добри познания за региона, тероара и спецификите на винопроизводството там, както и много контакти и приятели. Голямо предизвикателство е провеждането на две кампании годишно, тъй като гроздоберът в Нова Зеландия започва с българската пролет. Макар и на другия край на света, открихме много сходства с тероара на Могилово, вдъхновяваща природа и разкошни лозя. Пристрастията ни към Совиньон Блан отвеждат право към Марлборо – световно призната област в производството на този сорт. Винопроизводството в България все още трудно пробива път към меджународните пазари и вино от Нова Зеландия, произведено от български винари не само би обогатило портфолиото ни, но ще спомогне за международното популяризиране и разпознаваемост както на Мидалидаре, така и на българското вино като цяло. И не на последно място, винопроизводството там е известно не само с изключително качество и професионална работа, но и с непрестанни иновации, разчупване на традициите и постоянно усъвършенстване на лозарските и винарските практики. Това знание е много ценно за нас, както и възможността да обменим опит с винарите от Нова Зеландия.

Както всички нови проекти, пристъпихме към този след внимателно планиране, обмисляне на детайлите и старателна подготовка. Избрахме Совиньон Блан и Пино Ноар – най-доброто, което Нова Зеландия може да предложи. Разбира се, най-качественото грозде идва от най-добрите региони – Марлборо (Marlborough) и Централно Отаго (Central Otago). Положихме основите на проекта със създаването на Мидалидаре Нова Зеландия и дългосрочно наемане на лозя в двете области. Лозарството е ориентирано към минимална намеса и изразяване на сортовите характеристики. Винопроизводството е синергия от новозеландските практики и философията на Мидалидаре. Вината се произвеждат от винарския екип на Мидалидаре в споделен капацитет от винарната Алън Скот (Allan Scott) и се бутилират в база с най-висок клас оборудване.

Централната част на Марлборо е заключена между две големи реки - Уайрау и Ауатери. Там, в сърцето на Южните долини, се намира долината Уайхопай (Waihopai Valley) и лозовият масив Крейглокарт (Craiglochart) – домът на Midalidare New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Лозовият масив Крейглокарт е разположен по протежението на глетчерната река Уайхопай. Уникалният микроклимат, резултат от влиянието на реката и хълмистият релеф, надморската височина, големите температурни амплитуди и специфичният почвен състав формират изключителен тероар за Совиньон Блан и обуславят изразени сортови аромати във виното. Лозите са засадени на терасирано плато по поречието на реката. Почвите са с вулканичен произход, песъкливи, средно до силно каменисти и с висока водопропускливост. Големите температурни амплитуди, макар и предпоставка за пролетно измръзване, осигуряват оптимално съдържание на киселини в гроздето.

Представяме Midalidare New Zealand Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc: вино с пищни аромати на лайм, касис и морски бриз. Вкусовият аромат на цитрусови плодове и маракуя се подлсилва от солена свежест. В устата е плътно, отлично балансирано, с възхитително дълъг финал.

Проектът Мидалидаре Нова Зеландия е все още в началото си. С нетърпение очакваме съзряването на Midalidare New Zealand Central Otago “Te Kano” Pinot Noir и развитието на нашите задгранични планове. В Мидалидаре не се страхуваме от предизвикателства и работим упорито, целенасочено и последователно, за да осъществим докрай и тази своя мечта.
