Autumn Blush

Autumn Blush Wine Details

Description: Luscious, sweet and spicy flavors help balance the crisp acids in this wonderful light-bodied lush wine. A crowd pleaser made from Catawba grapes – an Indiana tradition grown locally for over 175 years. Serve chilled.

Varietal Definition
This was perhaps the earliest discovered native American grape, growing wild in Ohio and New York valleys, but it has since been surpassed by the Concord as the most widely planted native East Coast grape varietal. It primarily is used to make off-dry or sweet red wines, with a pronounced foxy (a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky) labrusca flavor. A number of producers also utilize this grape to make sparkling wine.
