Viticulture

Vidal Blanc grapes grow happily in just about any weather. Their thick, rubbery skins expand and contract with successive waves of warmth and chill through the late fall and early winter. They develop a rich palette of fruit flavors that can vary from vintage to vintage. We hand-picked the frozen grapes at two friends’ vineyards on Seneca Lake on the same January morning at 17⁰F (-8⁰C).

Vinification

Out of the press trickled a tiny bit of concentrated, sweet juice that we fermented very slowly at low temperature using special yeast to preserve its beautiful fruit flavors.

Tasting Note

Lusciously sweet from the first tiny sip, our Vidal Blanc Ice Wine grows on the palate with rich fruit and honey flavors, a slight hint of tartness, an opulent texture and long satisfying finish.
