Misty Creek

Misty Creek Wine Details
Price: $10.99 per bottle

Description: A dry, white Illinois table wine. Similar to a Sauvignon Blanc, it has a nice green apple and pear aroma that hints of sweetness, but the taste is crisp and the finish lingers on the palatte. The lingering flavors bring fullness to the palatte with a soft blending of fruit flavors. Barrel-aged Chardonel and dry Chardonel.

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.
