Vidal Icewine 375

Vidal Icewine (375ml) Wine Details
Price: $40.00 per bottle

Description: Golden in colour, aroma and taste. A classic, elegant, delicate style of Icewine commencing with a complex aromatic nose of freshly sliced pineapple, peach, orange and candied lemon drizzled with butterscotch and underlying orange marmalade, rock melon and passion fruit notes. The palate is rich and lush with balanced acidity streaking through the tropical fruit flavours that continue to evolve into the lengthy, "simply heavenly" finish. Intense yet elegant. Fantastic with exotic fruit salad, sabayon, crème caramel, Roquefort cheese or simply on its own after a beautiful meal. A treat with foie gras.

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.
