Triple Gold Medals for Vidal Estate In Australia covering all tiers - Legacy, Reserve and Estate ranges.

Vidal Estate has collected three gold medals at 16th International Cool Climate Wine Show in Australia. 

Gold medals:

  • Vidal Reserve Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2014
  • Vidal Estate Hawkes Bay Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2014
  • Vidal Legacy Hawkes Bay Chardonnay 2013


Vidal Estate winemaker Hugh Crichton says: “The 2013 and 2014 vintages were outstanding in Hawkes Bay. To see these wines come through strongly within the context of wine style that the International Cool Climate Show judges, is reward and acknowledgement that our Chardonnay and the classical Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon blends can stand up on the world stage. Our desire to produce wines with depth of flavour and refreshment sit comfortably with what our vineyards and region can deliver,” he said.

The Cool Climate Wine Show was established to raise the profile of high quality cool climate wines globally and attracts more than 600 wines in 25 competition classes. Wines are judged by a highly experienced 12-member team including two Masters of Wine.
