Seyval Blanc

Seyval Blanc Wine Details

Description: Produced with 100% Seyval Blanc grapes this crisp, dry wine is fermented and aged in French oak. It has the classic grassy notes characteristic of the Seyval grape, with light lemon overtones and a soft oak finish. The wine was styled to complement lighter seafood and pasta dishes as well as lighter cheeses.

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.
