Illinois Cellars Velvet White

Illinois Cellars Velvet White Wine Details
Price: $5.99 per bottle

Description: Made from the Niagara grape, Velvet White is cold fermented on Sauvignon Blanc yeast for 10 weeks to bring out this grape’s often hidden, subtle, tree fruit qualities of apricot and pear. This is an instantly appealing wine that is delicious served on ice for picnics and other fun fares.

Varietal Definition
A native American grape varietal, the Niagara is often referred to as the "white Concord." Widely grown in New York, it is a popular table wine, vinified in a slightly sweet style, though the best producers tend to minimize its inherent foxy (a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky) qualities.
