Crisp, light and fruity with a refreshing finish.
Vidal Blanc is a French-American hybrid grape variety. It is quite tough-skinned and disease resistant. Winter hardy but requires a long growing season. Vidal Blanc is a popular grape here in New England as well as upstate New York and Ontario.
The grapes are whole cluster pressed and the juice is settled overnight. The wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks with Lalvin 71B yeast to accentuate the fruit and reduce the acidity. The wine is aged in stainless steel tanks, cold stabilized, then bottled with about 1% residual reducing sugar.
This crisp, light wine is ready to drink soon after bottling and ages well for 1-3 years.
Good for sipping or with grilled seafood, chicken or pasta. Serve chilled.
