Seyval Blanc

Seyval Blanc Wine Details
Price: $17.50 per bottle

Description: This 100% delightful Seyval has citrus, lemon grass, and melon aromas, followed by tropical and red current flavors with a veil of minerality. Steely acidity contributes to a well rounded structure and flinty-clean finish. Food Pairing Suggestion: try with your favorite sushi roll, oysters Rockefeller; or a Bib lettuce salad with candied walnuts, sliced green apple, and gorgonzola cheese.

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.
