    Winemaker Notes
    Vidiano is an ancient white-wine grape from the Greek island of Crete, in the eastern Mediterranean. Although there are very few Vidiano vines left in existence (the variety was all but extinct less than 25 years ago), there are now signs of a small-scale revival. In the words of the Cretan wine authorities, Vidiano has been "revived due to the restless efforts of young winemakers".
    Typical Vidiano wines are medium- to full-bodied, with acidity that is remarkably fresh (given the warm, humid climate they come from) and a relatively broad spectrum of fruit flavors – such diverse descriptors as lime, quince, peach and even mango appear in Vidiano tasting notes.
    Although most often left as refreshing and crisp as the hot Cretan climate will allow, some Vidiano wines are fermented in barrel to give added weight and complexity. Lyrarakis, one of Crete's key wine producers, makes such a wine from grapes grown in its relatively high-altitude (2000ft/610m) Ippodromos vineyard. Similarly, the Douloufakis winery makes a varietal Vidiano aged in both acacia wood and oak. Naturally, due to the oak influence, this particular style of Vidiano has added secondary characteristics of sweet spice and vanilla.
