Vidal Select Late Harvest 2018

Vidal Select Late Harvest 2018


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 can withstand the cold winter weather, which makes it ideally suited to late harvest wine production. We harvested and pressed the grapes partially frozen on December 7, 2018 at -7°C. The juice had 30.7 brix and was fermented with specialty yeast strains that are well adapted to high sugar conditions. The resulting sweet wine strikes a nice balance between high sugar and high acidity, allowing the flavours to shine without being cloying. 100% estate grown.

Tasting Notes
Intense apricot, quince, tropical fruit and honey flavors. This is a late harvest wine with generous concentration of sugar and lively acidity.
