    PRICE SLASHED! Vidal’s impressive Reserve range has been selling on the market in the $18-20 price bracket for years (we’ve never been lower than $17.99!) but for a limited time you can grab ’em for this seriously smart price at a snip under fifteen bucks.

    Anthony Joseph Vidal was just 22 years young when he jumped off the ship from Spain way back in 1888. After purchasing a small section in Hawke’s Bay in 1905 he converted the stables that occupied the land into a wine cellar and hey presto – Vidal Estate was born!

    Wind the clock forward a few decades and the Vidal Reserve Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon has become one of the most reliable on the market. In fact just a couple of years ago this label took out Michael Cooper’s Best Buy Red of the Year!

    Using fruit from their prized Gimblett Gravels vineyards and given 18 months in oak this is a darkly fruited, mouth filling and supple red. From a great ’18 vintage, this is textbook Bordeaux blend from the Hawke’s Bay at an everyday rate.

    Just the style red to bust out when Mum’s Sunday roast is being served at the dinner table.
