This wine is produced from Vidal Blanc which is possibly the best of the white French – American hybrid grape varieties, a crossing of Ugni blanc and Seibel 4986. Excellent winemaking and viticulture properties, this thick skinned grape variety is very cold tolerant and is late ripening making it extremely suitable to Canadian climate, and one of the most popular varieties to use for icewine production. A range of wine styles can be produced with this grape dry to sweet table wines, dessert and icewines, occasionally displaying Riesling – like characteristics. Vidal tends to display aromas and flavours of peach, apricot, honey, and soft floral notes. Tasting Notes: Aromas of baked apples, peaches and honey carry to the palate with an indulgent sweetness and balanced acidity.
