Reif Winery Sun Skin Fermented Vidal 2021

Sun Skin Fermented Vidal 2021

VQA Ontario | 750ml


Vintage & Viticulture

A slow start to the season with a cool spring but summer brought hot dry weather perfect for grape growing. Mother Nature however turned the tables on winemakers in Ontario with a wet humid fall. Harvest was quick in an effort to pick fruit before rains affected the quality of grapes

Winemaker’s Notes

Orange wines have been made for centuries but have been making a comeback recently. Our first orange wine was made using fruit from young Vidal vines. The grapes were fermented on the skins and allowed to age a further 36 days on the skin.

Tasting Notes

The grapes were left to soak on their skins, resulting in a pale orange glow. Aromas of fresh peach, tangerine, white flower, and sweet lemon introduce a palate of refreshingly bright flavours and sensations. The palate is rich with soft tannins similar to a red wine.  This food-friendly wine can be paired with charcuterie, orange chicken, pork, and woodfired pizza.
