Zippy everyday wine

Producer | VIDA ESTATES

Region | Husi
Size | Bottle / 75cl
ABV | 12.50%
Style |
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).

  1. Tom B

    A masterstroke value-quality ratio winner in this everyday pouring treat. A real quaffable winner.

    Citrus on the nose, then on the palate it’s like lemons, gooseberries and peaches got together for a dance with the mouthfeel of a Gewürztraminer – yet it has great acidity (actually hard to identify what wines this tastes like).

    First evening had with sautéed pigeon breast, toasted walnuts, Roquefort and rocket salad: it was a great match to the piquancy of the walnut and Roquefort.
    Second evening finished it with roast pork and crackling where the acidity cut the fatty crackling perfectly.

    Hat tip to VIDA’s buyer for seeking out this Zghihară grape, as it’s hard to find value this good.
