Wine Review: This wine has to be one of the best Vidal Blanc’s we have tried in recent memory. This very pale yellow wine opens with a light lime and green apple like bouquet with a hint of spice. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, crisp, and slightly viscous with slightly sweet ripe pear like flavors. There are also notes of minerality and a touch of grapefruit on the back palate. The finish is semi-dry and very refreshing. If you like Vidal or have never even tried it, you will be spoiled by this one. It’s a winner. Enjoy this wine with your turkey over the holidays. Cheers - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Often referred to as Rieslings’ “kissing cousin”, Vidal Blanc is a hardy hybrid that thrives in our vineyards and has become one of our signature varietals. This intriguing off-dry white is bursting with crisp apple and juicy pear flavors. Enjoy casually sipping this wine or pair with spicy cuisine, grilled sausages, skewered shrimp or pork dishes.
