Relax under the stars, with that special someone, on a summer evening with our light crisp Vidal Blanc, a bowl of fresh strawberries by your side, and a cheese plate, of say, Gorgonzola. Colby, Gruyère, and Havarti. Taste the terroir of a Loudoun Valley summer and the fulfillment of a promises. Fresh, fruity and floral, it goes particularly well with savory, sweet and sour dishes, and lightly to moderately spiced dishes of pork, chicken or duck, but excels with spicy cuisines such as Cajun, Creole, Thai, or Mexican. Though, I go against type and enjoy it with hamburgers; it’s a great picnic drink. Serve chilled between 45◦-55◦ F.
Vidal Blanc was developed in the 1930s by French breeder Jean Louis Vidal; his primary goal in developing the variety was to produce vines suitable for the production of Cognac in the Charente region of France. However, due to its winter hardiness this grape variety is ideally suited to Eastern United States where it produces large golden delicious grapes
Our Vidal was aged in stainless steel producing a beautiful wine that is slightly floral, fresh, crisp, light & teasingly sweet. A little less that 1% residual sugar.
