Standing Stone Vineyards Vidal Seneca Lake Dry 2007
External Reviews for Standing Stone Vineyards Vidal Seneca Lake Dry
Great green apple and starfruit notes dominate on the nose and palate of this crisp, dry New York white. Light- to medium-bodied and very fresh, the Standing Stone Dry Vidal is terrific with grilled chicken or poached fish.
Vidal is a French hybrid of Ugni Blanc and Seyval Blanc and is much prized by the growers of the eastern United States and Canada for both its winter hardiness and its ability to produce delicious wines ranging from dry to late harvest sweet. This delightful example from Standing Stone Vineyards is dry, but a touch of oak smooths the crisp acidity, allowing the fruit to show its ripe tropical flavors. Serve with seafood, Mexican, or Asian dishes or sip with hors d'oeuvres or while weeding the garden.
Crisp and clean, with ripe tropical flavors. the Vidal grape is a descendant of the Ugni Blanc (Trebbiano in Italy) and serves as the base for this delightful wine. A portion of the wine was aged in older oak barrels, smoothing out the crisp palate and making the mouth smooth and full, but austere. Serve this wine with grilled fish and cilantro, or try it with Chinese take out food to jazz up a weeknight meal.
