How do I require a specific instance of a class?

Using the example from the Apache module:

apache::vhost { 'redirect.example.com non-ssl':
  servername      => 'redirect.example.com',
  port            => '80',
  docroot         => '/var/www/redirect',
  redirect_status => 'permanent',
  redirect_dest   => 'https://redirect.example.com/'

apache::vhost { 'redirect.example.com ssl':
  servername => 'redirect.example.com',
  port       => '443',
  docroot    => '/var/www/redirect',
  ssl        => true,

How can I reference only the "redirect.example.com ssl" instance of the "apache::vhost" instance? I would want to do it something like this:

  require => Class['apache::vhost'],

I'm not sure how to tell it to look at the second vhost and not the first listed one.

apache::vhost is not a class, it's a defined type. You reference it just as you would any other resource:

file{ '/var/www/redirect/index.html':
  require => Apache::Vhost['redirect.example.com ssl'],
