LATE HARVEST VIDAL
The flavour profile is amazing, there is the richness of late harvest – notes of floral swirl out of the glass complimented by notes of apples with notes of wildflower honey and beeswax. The aromas carry to the palate with crisp apple and clean finish.

Vidal (VEE-dal) Possibly the best of the white French – American hybrid grape varieties, an Ugni blanc and Seibel 4986 hybrid variety. 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.
Harvested mid November and fermented totally dry. Most late harvest wines have a higher residual sugar this one is unique in it’s dryness. It offers that concentrated profile of a late harvest, beautiful complexity and sits at just 3g/L residual.
