Settlers White Wine Details
Price: $14.00 per bottle

Description: A perfect blend between the Seyval grape and the Traminette grape this wine is sure to offer an elegant suprise to even the most discerning wine drinkers. The complex tastes with the spicy flavors of the Traminette grape make this wine one of Mac's Creeks finest.

Varietal Definition
'Traminette' is a late mid-season white wine grape which produces wine with pronounced varietal character likened to one of its parents, 'Gewürztraminer'. 'Traminette' is distinguished by its superior wine quality combined with good productivity, partial resistance to several fungal diseases, and cold hardiness superior to its acclaimed parent, 'Gewürztraminer'.
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 Château Lafayette Reneau.
