Moonflower Wine Details

Description: A semi-sweet white wine made with our estate grown chardonel grapes that has lovely floral and tropical citrus aromas. Light pinapple and grapefruit flavor with a hint of smokeyness. When chilled it is perfect for sipping on a warm afternoon.

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.
