Colour is bright golden straw. Aromas of dried apricot, peach and saffron are layered with notes of lemongrass, green tea and fresh cantaloupe. On the palate the wine is rich and opulent with a harmony of sweetness and well-framed acidity. The wine is youthful, with encouraging development if cellared. Tasted July, 2018
The Vidal grapes were left to hang into winter, and picked once temperatures dropped to -10° Celsius. These sweet little grapes were then pressed with the juice coming out at 37.1 brix. The juice was then transferred to a stainless-steel tank for cold settling. The juice was then racked off to another tank for fermentation. The fermentation was stopped when the perfect amount of sweetness was tasted in balance with the natural acidity. The wine was then stabilized, filtered, and bottled.
