Vidal Special Select Late Harvest 2015
Vidal is a winter-hardy French hybrid that is particularly popular in Canada and the north-eastern United States. The variety ripens late and has thick skins that are able to withstand the unfavourable winter weather. We generally harvest a portion of the grapes in November to December and leave the rest to harvest when the temperature drops low enough to make icewine. We then blend the two batches to make this lusciously sweet dessert wine.
Intense apricot, quince, tropical fruit, caramel and honey flavors. This is a late harvest wine with generous concentration of sugar and lively acidity.
Drink as a dessert wine or serve with Belgian waffles, fruit crepes or pair with soft cheeses.
