Vidal Blanc

Vidal Blanc Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: Elegant tropical fruit, apricot, and peach aromas followed by a full bodied desert styled palate with a delicate balance of firm sweetness and crisp acidity. Clean ripe 100% Vidal Blanc grapes from our vineyard were fermented long and slow in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to retain its incredible fruitfulness; and then bottled clean and fresh with about eight percent residual sugar. It?s everything you have come to know in our light-dessert styled Vidal! Enjoy this wine with a fruit tart, cheese plate, or by itself after dinner.

Varietal Definition
Vidal Blanc:
A white French hybrid once widely planted in the south of France, it is more suitable for growing in warm and humid climates like the South. These vines are prolific, producing large golden berries, suitable for eating out of hand as table grapes. When vinified, Villard Blanc makes a fruity, mildly intense white wine (somewhat Sauvignon Blanc like) of fairly neutral and simple flavors. Primarily used for blending.
