Meadow's Edge White

Meadow's Edge White Wine Details
Price: $13.00 per bottle

Description: Our light hearted, slightly sweet Meadow's Edge is a blend of Seyval Blanc and Vidal Blanc. A nice honey sweetness greets you up front then dissipates on your palate to a crisp, clean finish. It won't leave you with a cloying sweetness. It's a perfect sipping wine for those lazy summer afternoons. It also makes a nice aperitif wine.

Varietal Definition
Vidal Blanc:
A white French hybrid once widely planted in the south of France, it is more suitable for growing in warm and humid climates like the South. These vines are prolific, producing large golden berries, suitable for eating out of hand as table grapes. When vinified, Villard Blanc makes a fruity, mildly intense white wine (somewhat Sauvignon Blanc like) of fairly neutral and simple flavors. Primarily used for blending.
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 Ch√Ęteau Lafayette Reneau.
