Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit zest, sweet pickles peppers, canned peaches, and dried lemon and white flowers with a satiny, crisp, dry light-to-medium body and a delightful, medium-length finish that shows nuances of lemon, tart yellow apple, lemongrass, and sweet peppers. Pleasing fruit and acid with light and savory notes; a good choice aperitif.

Seyval Blanc

Wine Glass White.jpg
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.
