Vidal Blanc

Vidal Blanc has proven to be amongst the versatile varietals in North American viticulture. In Canadian vineyards, this hybrid has excelled in the production of Ice Wine, from Nova Scotia to British Columbia. This has earned Vidal superior status among all other French-American hybrids. In Canada’s fledgling, quality wine-classification system, the Vintner’s Quality Alliance (VQA), it is the only hybrid entitled to the highest category of quality. This is the Designated Viticultural Area (DVA) status. However, this honor is reserved for its Ice Wine incarnation only. The grape is well suited to cold climates, due to its mid-season ripening and its ability to produce good crops from secondary buds, in the event of late spring frosts. This makes Vidal tough enough to withstand the cold of regions like the Finger Lakes of New York State, many Mid-Western states and the Niagara Peninsula. Vidal is one of the commercially-successful hybrid products of prolific French (Bordeaux) hybridizer Albert Seibel ( Read more »

Vidal Blanc on Snooth

  • Sainte Genevieve Winery Vidal NV


    This wine is somewhat unapproachable, and may be enjoyed best with a meal (chicken, spicy food). It has a beautiful golden color and a very fruity nose with hints of honey, melon and pear that carried over into the palate. Unfortunate, the fruity flavors were overpowered with a lingering tart acidity and excess alcohol. Read More

  • Rockgarden Cellars Voyage de Vert 2012


    The zesty aroma delivers a clear message -- this is truly inspired by Portugese Vinho Verdes. Thought the acidity fell a little flat, but overall the citrusy green apple notes and slight bite of effervescence make this a good inexpensive summer sipper. Read More

  • Pelee Island Chenin Blanc Vidal 2010


    What a delicious and savory white from Pelee Island, Ontario, Canada! The color was daybright yellow in my glass. Aroma's of citrus, pineapple, and melon tantalized my senses! Mouth feel was medium in weight with a good acidity level. Flavors of young white peach, melon, and pineapple abound! On my second sip, more tropical fruit, mineral, and f... Read More
