Prairie Dew

Prairie Dew Wine Details
Price: $11.50 per bottle

Description: A semi-sweet wine made with some of the natural sweetness of the vine locked inside these delicious Chardonel grapes

Varietal Definition
Chardonel was developed in New York State, to be a late-ripening, highly-productive, cold-climate varietal. A cross of Chardonnay and Seyval Blanc, Chardonel is proving its value in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest states. Given much of the same treatment as Chardonnay, it adapts well to barrel fermention, and controlled lees contact. The result is often a full-bodied dry wine, high in alcohol and acidity, with a similar, if less pronounced character than Chardonnay.
