Vidal Icewine VQA

Vidal Icewine VQA Wine Details
Price: $38.95 per bottle

Description: Harvested during the depth of the winter of 2002, one of the coldest on record, our Vidal Icewine has the classic aromas and flavours of peach, lychee fruit and a distinct note of honey on the nose. A golden amber colour is as much of a treat for the eye as the wine is for the palate. Best served lightly chilled on it’s own in a Riedel Icewine glass. This wine can also be used in sauces, toppings or paired with light cakes.

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.
