Mom Wine Details
Price: $19.00 per bottle

Description: Narmada Winery’s 2009 Mom wine is an off-dry white wine with 1.5% sugar content made from a blend of Vidal Blanc and Chardonel grapes. “Mom” is a tribute to Narmada Winery’s owner’s mother, and to all moms who have selflessly sacrificed on behalf of and to provide for their children. Chardonel, which is a French-American hybrid grape, is blended with Vidal Blanc grown on the Narmada estate.

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.
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.
