2004 Madeline Sylvaner

2004 Madeline Sylvaner Wine Details

Description: Delicate and very light, this Alsatian style wine has a slight peppermint finish, and goes well with light sauces. Very refreshing!

Varietal Definition
Widely grown in the Alsace region of France, Germany and Central Europe. Suited to temperate zones, the vine is high-yielding and the grape produces an "easy" white wine with lightly spicy, floral flavors and mild intensity. Once very popular in California, it seems to have fallen victim to changing fashion in recent years and been replaced by Johannisberg Riesling in current taste. It has also been crossed with the latter grape to yield the Muller-Thurgau hybrid grape and another hybrid version called Scheurebe as well as several other crossings of a similar nature.
