Seyval Blanc

Seyval Blanc Wine Details

Description: A semi-dry white, medium-bodied with complex floral aromas, grapefruit, and melon flavors. This wine is primarily produced from the Seyval Blanc grape. A small percentage of Cayuga white is added for complexity. Serve chilled. This wine was a bronze medal winner at the 2006 Indiana State Fair.

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.
