Great Heron Vidal Blanc 2008 Semi-Dry Missouri White Wine

Great Heron Vidal Blanc 2008 Semi-Dry Missouri White Wine Wine Details
Price: $17.99 per bottle

Description: This semi dry Vidal Blanc shares many of the same aspects found in the Lone Oak, but leans toward the sweeter side. The sugar content is complimented perfectly by a well balanced acidity. The wine’s name references a long time resident of the property, a Great Blue Heron that has nested near the secluded lake at Chandler Hill for years. The wine offers flavors of ripe stone fruits and a refreshing, lingering finish.

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.
