Vidal Blanc

Late Harvest Vidal Blanc Wine Details

Description: The 1997 growing season provided ideal conditions for the production of quality, late harvest wines in Maryland. The delicacy of its regional origin with satisfying complexities is found in this luscious, unctuous wine. A terrific before or after dinner drink.

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.
