Seyval

Seyval Wine Details
Price: $18.00 per bottle

Description: The most rugged vine in the yard is the Seyval Blanc, a white grape tough enough to withstand the cold nights of the mountain valley. Seyval grapes yield a crisp white wine that pleases both wine drinkers who prefer dry wine and those who like a sweeter wine.

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.
