Rivanna White Wine Details
Price: $10.00 per bottle

Description: A medium dry wine made with Vidal Blanc grapes crafted in a Germanic style. The wine is a light wine with light fruit flavors. We ferment the wine as cold as possible to retain all the fruit favors. After fermentation, unfermented Vidal Blanc juice is added back to enhance the fruit flavors and add natural sweetness to the wine. 1% Residual Sugar.

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.
