Granite State White

Granite State White Wine Details

Description: If you like Chardonnay, you’ll love this wine! LaBelle Winery’s Granite State White is a medium-bodied, oak-aged dry white wine made from the Seyval Blanc grape. Like Chardonnay, this wine is clean and crisp on the palate, imparting a mineral quality alongside citrus and stone fruit notes. Thanks to the French oak aging, this wine also imparts a slightly spiced, buttery finish. Granite State White is wonderful paired with dinners of poultry or light pork and rich cream or butter-based sauces. Also great served with creamy cheeses.

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.
