Seyval Blanc

Serve in a White Wine Glass
Seyval Blanc is a white French hybrid that works well in cool climates, given its delicate fruit notes and high acidity. Producers in the Finger Lakes district of New York State, Canada and even England craft notable wines from the variety.

Most versions offer simple pear and apple notes, while a few of the best display touches of honeyed nectarine and coconut cream.
