Appalachian Sunset

Appalachian Sunset Wine Details
Price: $7.50 per bottle

Description: A semi-sweet blush table wine made from American varieties including Niagara, Cayuga. We call this the "backporch wine".

Varietal Definition
A hybrid cross between the Johannisberg Riesling and Seyval Blanc grapes. Makes a fruity white wine of mild intensity somewhat similar to Aurore. Widely grown in the Finger Lakes region of New York State and other cool regions of North America.
A native American grape varietal, the Niagara is often referred to as the "white Concord." Widely grown in New York, it is a popular table wine, vinified in a slightly sweet style, though the best producers tend to minimize its inherent foxy (a unique aroma/flavor profile variously described as wild and musky) qualities.
