Seyval Blumenhof Vineyards and Winery

2016 Seyval

The Wine:

Featuring the bright, crisp, citrusy fruit character of the Seyval grape, this wine is often compared with less grassy versions of Sauvignon Blanc.  Pairs well with seafood and light cheeses.  [0.0% residual sugar]

The Grape:

Seyval:  (pronounced say-VAHL) A French hybrid (one of the parent grapes is Rayon d’Or), Seyval is the earliest grape to ripen in the vineyard – often in mid-August.  It tends to produce a lot of clusters, and in most years must be thinned to reduce the crop.  This white grape makes a wine that is crisp and light and exhibits an herbal-citrus character.  Blumenhof grows 1 acre of Seyval.

1-11 bottles: $16.85 per bottle
