White Oak Semi-Sweet

White Oak Semi-Sweet Wine Details
Price: $8.00 per bottle

Description: A white wine also made from the Carlos grape only a little less sweet. The Semi-Sweet White is an excellent choice for those who have less experience with the traditional Muscadine flavor, but still enjoy a slightly sweet, fruity flavor in a wine. Best serve chilled.

Varietal Definition
A species of native American vines that were first discovered by European explorers, who found them growing along the low lying Southern coastal regions. Most Muscadine wines (reds and whites) are blends, usually given proprietary names by the winery (e.g., "Vintners' Blend"), and vinified in the sweet or semi-sweet style. Muscadines and blends are usually sweet and foxy (a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky).
Made as a varietal by several U.S. wineries, mainly in N. Carolina and Mississipi, this bronze Muscadine hybrid derived from the native American species grape found in the Southern states is generally made into sweet wines. The best known related variety is the Scuppernong.
