Estate White Port

Estate White Port Wine Details
Price: $24.00 per bottle

Description: Debuted October 2004.OakGlenn's Estate White Port is American-oak barrel fermented and aged from premium Chardonel grapes. Honey and orange liqueur flavors dance delicately on your palate. With 20% alcohol, this truly is an after-meal sipping port.

Varietal Definition
Chardonel was developed in New York State, to be a late-ripening, highly-productive, cold-climate varietal. A cross of Chardonnay and Seyval Blanc, Chardonel is proving its value in the Mid-Atlantic and Midwest states. Given much of the same treatment as Chardonnay, it adapts well to barrel fermention, and controlled lees contact. The result is often a full-bodied dry wine, high in alcohol and acidity, with a similar, if less pronounced character than Chardonnay.
