This wine is a blend of Vidal (VEE-dal) and Seyval (Say-val). Vidal is an Ugni blanc and Seibel 4986 hybrid variety. A cold tolerant vine that produces a wide variety of wine styles, from dry table wines to icewines. Common flavour profile is peach, apricot, floral and honey. Seyval is a Seyve-Villard hybrid of complex V. vinifera, V. rupestris, and V.aestivalis var. lincecumii parentage. Also a cold hardy variety that is tolerant to many soil types and yields a mildly fruity white wine with common flavours of floral, citrus, apricot, and plum. Great blending varieties and Honeysuckle is consistently the most popular wine at Waupoos Estates. It is super easy drinking, fruit forward with a nice residual sugar. It is smooth and very approachable. Typically very food friendly as well. Each year wines will be different but this wine we try to keep as similar as possible.
