White Muscadine

White Muscadine Wine Details

Description: The White Muscadine is not sweet but pleases wine drinkers who like the dryer taste of wine and enjoy the fruit aroma with a long memory. It is made from Magnolia and Carlos muscadines and has a brilliant golden color.

Varietal Definition
A species of native American vines that were first discovered by European explorers, who found them growing along the low lying Southern coastal regions. Most Muscadine wines (reds and whites) are blends, usually given proprietary names by the winery (e.g., "Vintners' Blend"), and vinified in the sweet or semi-sweet style. Muscadines and blends are usually sweet and foxy (a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky).
Made as a varietal by several U.S. wineries, mainly in N. Carolina and Mississipi, this bronze Muscadine hybrid derived from the native American species grape found in the Southern states is generally made into sweet wines. The best known related variety is the Scuppernong.
Muscadine grape derivative with floral flavors used mainly to make sweet white wines in the South-East and Gulf states of the U.S..
