Vidal Icewine

Vidal Icewine Wine Details
Price: $25.00 per bottle

Description: "The colour is deceptively pale for the power too come, but the main draw here is the very, elegant, fine riesling-like presentation on the palate. Generous yellow apple, petrol, lemon and a touch of mint on the nose, with some youthful bready lees. Flavours stay right on track through to excellent length. A joy to drink" – David Lawrason,, November, 2006

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.
