Seyval Ice Wine Wine Details
Price:

Description: A sweet white dessert wine made in the style of the famous German wines pressed from frozen grapes. As the water freezes from the fruit, the sugars are concentrated to produce a lusciously rich wine with the sweetness of honey. Also known as "nectar of the gods."

Varietal Definition
Seyval Blanc:
A French hybrid that is often thought of as "East Coast Chardonnay," or at least an alternative to same. Produced in a crisp, dry style, this white wine is often fermented or aged in oak to enhance the rather neutral flavors of the grape itself. It lends itself to service at the dining table and is food friendly. Seyval Blanc is often used in proprietary blends; good examples can be found from Prejean, Clinton and Ch√Ęteau Lafayette Reneau.
