Vidal Blanc

Late Harvest Vidal Blanc Wine Details
Price: $14.95 per bottle

Description: Vintage 2002. Our Late Harvest Vidal Blanc is a delightful dessert wine that pairs well with various types of cuisine. The abundant bouquet of toast and tropical fruit gives way to a palate rich in orange, pineapple and caramel. Balanced by good acidity and a lengthy finish, this wine pairs beautifully before dinner with fruit and strong cheese, or as an after dinner wine with light cream-based desserts such as creme brulee and panna cotta.. Note: The Late Harvest Vidal Blanc is peaking; we recommend that it be consumed within the next three to six months.

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.
