Symphony Mele

Symphony Mele Wine Details
Price: $15.00 per bottle

Description: Sister wine of the Symphony Dry, Symphony Mele is also made with the Symphony grape, with a slightly higher residual sugar level for added sweetness. It is wonderful when partnered with poultry and shellfish, and a sure hit at dinner parties. “Mele” means “song” in Hawaiian, and Symphony Mele is truly a melody of delight. Winner of the Gold medal at the 2004 Finger Lakes International Winc Competition

Varietal Definition
Melody is a recent hybrid grape developed by the Geneva Research Station in New York State, used to produce light bodied white wines. Melody has yet to take any significant acreage away from the Cayuga in New York, but its cold hardiness and pleasant fruit and floral character have made it successful in the American Mid-West. Melody is a cross of Seyval Blanc with GW5 (Pinot Blanc x Ontario).
The Symphony Grape was developed in California in the 1960's by Dr. Olmo at U.C. Davis. It is a cross between Muscat of Alexandria and Grenache Gris. The fragrances and pleasant fruit flavors make it suitable for a white wine.
