Seyval

Seyval Wine Details
Price:

Description: Our 2003 Seyval's delicate grapefruit and citrus flavors make this selection a treat for the palate. Our winemakers kept fermentation temperatures cool to accent the clean, crisp character of this dry white wine.

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.
