The aromatics are intense but not obnoxious with floral notes, pineapple, peach, cantaloupe and honey. The palate is medium bodied with fresh acidity balancing out the sweetness and making the wine a lovely sipper.
The Late Harvest Vidal was harvested as slightly concentrated fresh fruit from slight dehydration on the vine prior to harvesting at a ripe 27.6 brix and still bright acidity.
After whole cluster pressing the fruit, the juice was cool fermented in stainless steel and then continued to age in stainless steel after racking once. The wine was never fined (not necessary) and was simply cold stabilized before being sterile filtered and bottled on July 1st, 2021.
Food Pairing Notes
While it is a sweet wine it is not overly sweet so will work well with dessert courses with medium sweetness like fresh fruit and custard, crème brulee with persimmon, or a cheese course. If you are feeling indulgent it would also pair wonderfully with foie gras.
