Reif Winery Vidal Late Harvest 2014

Vidal Late Harvest 2014

VQA Ontario


Vintage & Viticulture

2014 vintage started with below norm temperatures from January to April. May came in with more normal temperatures and allowed the vines to settle in. Most of the summer was cooler and wetter which resulted in slow and steady maturation. August and September was back to normal temperatures and allowed the fruit to ripen. Harvest was as late as 10 days.

Winemaker’s Notes

A November picking of the Vidal grapes provides natural sugars in the wine for the production of a sweeter table wine. Great acidity is the wines defining characteristic and has made one of its parents Ugni Blanc(trebbiano) famous in cognac.

Tasting Notes

Aromas of peach and pear, delicate floral notes of apple blossom and honey. Sweet peach and Anjou pear on the palate. With acidity that is as fresh and lively as this a great summer sipper. Pair with salads, zesty cheeses like blue or spicy stir fries. Enjoy after a meal with fruit based desserts.
