In this video I take a tour of the Meridiana Wine Estate in Malta
The Maltese islands enjoy a temperate Mediterranean climate. Meridiana’s estate is situated on a plain at the centre of Malta within close proximity of the sea. The estate underlies a number of small hills, the most notable of which is the ancient, walled-city of Mdina. The soil is calcareous with a relatively thick substrate of moisture-retentive, blue-clay subsoil.
The climatic, geographical, and soil conditions on the island provide ideal conditions for the production of wines which have brilliant colours, clean aromas, and a lively acidity.
The estate consists of 19 hectares (47 acres) of land including the winery building, cellars, offices and passage-ways. The total planted area is 17 hectares (42 acres or 169 tumoli) and is cultivated with the following varieties: Chardonnay – 8 ha (20 ac); Cabernet Sauvignon – 3.5 ha (8.5 ac); Merlot – 3 ha (7.5 ac); and Syrah 2.5 ha (6 ac). All 91,000 vines on the estate are individually drip-irrigated. In 2013, 1,000 Moscato vines were planted.
