Salmagundi Wine Details

Description: A blend of Vidal Blanc and DeChaunac from the Hudson Valley, this is a light, semi-sweet blush wine with a delightful nose and full-bodied fruit flavor. A yummy wine for summer evenings wherever you are (or those wishing for summer evenings).

Varietal Definition
De Chaunac:
An early ripening french-american hybrid grape which gives a fruity, balanced red wine usually possessed of low to mild tannic content. Planted mainly in the cooler regions of the Northeast U.S. and Canada.
Vidal Blanc:
A white French hybrid once widely planted in the south of France, it is more suitable for growing in warm and humid climates like the South. These vines are prolific, producing large golden berries, suitable for eating out of hand as table grapes. When vinified, Villard Blanc makes a fruity, mildly intense white wine (somewhat Sauvignon Blanc like) of fairly neutral and simple flavors. Primarily used for blending.
