Vidal Icewine VQA

Vidal Icewine VQA Wine Details
Price: $25.00 per bottle

Description: Isn't it ironic that these intense, warm tropical flavours -- mango, apricots, peaches -- come from grapes harvested in the snowy depths of winter? This wine smells like Del Monte Fruit cup (!) but is a mouthful of luscious flavours as uplifting as they are sweet. A streak of acidity keeps it bright and clean and there is enough weight to make this an enjoyable sipper after dinner without the extra calories of dessert.

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.
