Description: Styled after a German late harvest wine, our Mountain Mist is 100% Vidal Blanc harvested after the first frost hits the vineyards. Sweet, but not syrupy, look for melon, citrus, and tropical notes that linger on the palate. (50% Vidal Blanc, 50% Vignoles, 12% RS)

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.
Commonly grown in the cooler regions of North America, this french-american hybrid used for making white dry, late-harvest and ice-wines has its origins in the Chardonnay grape. Currently very popular as a dessert wine because of its restrained fruitiness and good balance. Same as Ravat.
