2011 Late Harvest Vidal Blanc
This consummate late harvest wine exhibits peach and mango aromas balanced by an exotic, spicy finish that invites another taste.
90 points Wine & Spirits
Tropical fruit and passion fruit explode on the palate along with concentrated flavors of candied papaya, dried peaches, and a hint of quince. This very expressive wine has exotic aromas and a balanced mouthfeel. Grapes are left sweet and dehydrated by several hard frosts before harvest.
