Winemaking:

The 2017 Vidal was harvested at -14°C and pressed the same morning. We hand-harvested to protect the integrity of the fruit and whole cluster pressed
a long and slow cycle to gently extract as much concentration of flavours possible. The Vidal was cold settled after pressing and then racked into stainless steel for a long, slow fermentation at cool temperatures to enhance aromatics and preserve fruitiness. Fermentation finished timely this vintage and
the wine was protein stabilized and filtered before bottling.

 

Appearance:

Golden straw with a clear hue.

Aromas:

A very perfumed wine with citrus fruits, tree fruits and tropical fruits that fill the
glass. A fresh, ripe medley of concentrated fruits and honey awaken the senses.
Secondary perfume notes, honeysuckle, quince and spice complete the aroma profile.

Palate:

A perfect match to the aromas, rich with citrus fruits, honey, peach and apricot
when entering the palate. This Vidal is fresh, full and is very fruit-driven. Notes of peach, tangerine, honeysuckle and spice are layered with rich texture and balance. This Vidal is balanced and round on the palate with refreshing acidity to match the sweetness. A medium-bodied wine with a
long finish that lingers on the palate. This wine drinks well on its own and pairs with many cheeses and desserts.
