Seyval Blanc

Seyval Blanc Wine Details

Description: This light bodied white wine is crisp, refreshing and true to the varietal character of Seyval Blanc. It displays notes of green apple, honeydew melon and grapefruit, all balanced with a fresh acidity and a long finish. Summer salads with vinaigrettes and white fish with lemon are the perfect match.

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.
