Vidal

Vidal is a white French hybrid variety grown primarily in the northeastern US and Canada. Vidal is sometimes grown to create a white table wine, though more often it is used to produce sweet late-harvest and icewines wines. Vidal, as a white table wine, has clean aromas of sweet citrus, pink grapefruit, and floral notes. It is a refreshing and medium bodied white wine with crisp clean acidity. When it's used to make ice wines, vidal often has an apricot and tangerine flavor.
