Seyval Blanc Winemaker’s

Seyval Blanc Winemaker’s Reserve Wine Details

Description: Winemaker Amy LaBelle specially selected this vintage of the French hybrid grape Seyval Blanc for its outstanding aging potential. A limited number of cases of this award-winning wine were aged in the bottle for 2 years. The results is this very dry, delicate wine. Slow-fermenting yields a beautiful wine replete with floral, fruity notes and soft tannins. Excellent as an aperitif or with seafood or creamy pasta dishes, this is a perfect wine to sip on a warm summer evening. Enjoy this exclusive wine chilled. Fruit Source: Walker’s Fruit Farms in Forestville, New York.

Varietal Definition
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 Château Lafayette Reneau.
