Vidal Blanc

Vidal Blanc Wine Details
Price: $11.00 per bottle

Description: What a wonderful hybrid grape! It grows well in areas not as suitable for Vinifera and produces an incredibly fruity, semi dry wine. The Vidal grapes are hand harvested, chilled, hand sorted, destemmed, crushed, pressed, and the juice is settled for 2 days. This juice is fermented very, very slowly at temperatures of 45 degrees or colder and fermentation is stopped at 2 Brix(2% sugar by volume). Gold Medal ~ 2002 VWGA Virginia Wine Comp. Silver Medal - 2003 Va. Governor's Cup Wine Comp. Bronze Medal - 2003 Los Angeles County Fair.

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.
