WTN: 2011 Konzelmann Vidal Golden Vintage (Ontario VQA)

by Paul B. » Fri Nov 08, 2013 9:31 pm

The 2011 Konzelmann Vidal Golden Vintage pours with a beautiful clear straw colour, showing light yellow highlights in the glass.

Aromas of passion fruit, papaya, ripe pineapple and pine needles on the nose show that alliteration need not take the first letter of the grape's name...(!)

Ripe, sweet pineapple flavours lead on the entry; a touch of residual sugar moderates acidity that is refreshing and in fine balance. A tangerine flavour emerges on the mid-palate and offers some pleasant citrus-rind replays on the finish, which wraps up with just a touch of warmth (12 % alc./vol.).

Konzelmann's Vidal is one of my favourite examples of varietal Ontarian Vidal table wine. It shows how versatile the Vidal grape is in Ontario's winescape. Vidal produces wines across the full spectrum: from dry, crisp table wines, to off-dry ones like this one; and, finally, late-harvest dessert wines and the pinnacle — icewine.

Vidal Golden Vintage is available at the winery only, for $9.75 per bottle.

Thanks Paul, we all enjoy your notes here. Anything else from K we should look out for? How is the Dry Riesling?

Hey Bob,

I like most of their wines. The Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder) is exceptionally good. Try it if you can find it in AB.
