Brianna wine is known for its fruitiness as well as its aromatic bouquet. With flavors ranging from pineapple to apricot and peach, it is a very easy drink white wine. We have finished this wine semi-sweet and it is also best served chilled. The Brianna Grape is a selection of Elmer Swenson.
The Frontenac Grape, which was developed by the University of Minnesota, is well known for its full bodied red wines. A deep garnet color and very intense cherry and plum aromas allow for this dry red wine to quickly become a favorite for those who prefer red wines. This dry red wine is aged with oak and is best served at room temperature.
Made from the Minnesota LaCrescent grape developed by the University of Minnesota, this wine is often compared to a Vignole or Riesling; this white wine is very aromatic with lots of apricot, lime and honey aromas. Finished off semi-sweet, this is best served chilled.
The Marquette wine features a very complex aroma and flavor profile, offering black current, cherry, black pepper and spice. It also is substantial with tannin. Being a medium bodied dry red wine this grape is a direct descendent of a Pinot Noir and comparisons are often drawn. This wine is also served best at room temperature and has been aged with oak. The Marquette grape is another variety of the University of Minnesota.
A Frontenac Rose enables the grapes to be fermented off skin before the wine develops the dark color of a true Frontenac Wine. However, the flavors of intense cherry and plum are still evident of the Frontenac Grape, which was also developed by the University of Minnesota. While finished off semi-sweet, most find this wine to have a full flavor when served chilled.
