Seyval Blanc

Seyval Blanc Wine Details
Price: $11.99 per bottle

Description: One of the original grapes planted at Four JG's, Seyval is a crisp, barrel-aged wine that captures the tastes of melon and hints of butter and vanilla. The grapes are gently as whole clusters and immediately began fermentation to capture the fresh, vibrant fruit character of the Seyval Blanc grape. For increased complexity, we fermented three-fourths of the juice in 60-gallon American oak barrels and the balance in stainless steel tanks Enjoy with salads and shrimp dishes.

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 Ch√Ęteau Lafayette Reneau.
