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.
This variety has high acidity, when fermented it produces a well-balanced dry red table wine. The wine has a deep blue-red color when young, but when aged the blue pigment is deposited & the wine becomes quite stable.
