Old gold color. Aromas of buttered corn muffin, sweet custard bao, orange flavored buttercream, green olive, elderflower, and banana puree with a slightly chewy, crisp, off-dry medium body and a smooth, interesting, medium-length toasted baguette, nutmeg, and peaches in honey finish with moderate oak. A fun oaky take on Vidal Blanc that will pair well with Nashville Hot Chicken.

Vidal Blanc

Vidal Blanc is a French hybrid grape found in New York State and Canada. Developed in the 1930s, it is ideal in these territories, as the vine can withstand hash winters. Its most famous use is as an ice wine, produced in Ontario.
