La Crescent

La Crescent Wine Details

Description: This golden grape is a charmer with its pronounced apricot flavor and snappy acidity. La Crescent vines make up our largest block of vines with plantings in 2005 and 2006. It is a very recently developed hybrid (1988) from the University of Minnesota and features a heritage of native riparia and German Muscat

Varietal Definition
La Crescent's intense nose of apricot, peach, and citrus lends itself to superior quality off-dry or sweet white wines. Produced in a Germanic style, La Crescent wine is reminiscent of Vignoles or Riesling. The grape's high acidity provides good structure for excellent dessert or late-harvest style wines.
