Emerald straw color. Aromas and flavors of baked pineapple and apple and spiced brown butter on rice pilaf with an bright, dry-yet-fruity light-to-medium body and an engaging, medium-long finish with suggestions of grilled meyer lemon with balsamic glaze, honeyed almond, and hint of grass with no oak flavor. A distinctive savory white hybrid wine that drinks like an Albariño; a must-try.

White Hybrid Blend is a category that includes white wines made from two or more hybrid grapes; there wines comes from states such as Wisconsin, Missouri, New York State and Virginia. Grapes include Vignoles, Seyval Blanc and Traminette; the wines tender to be on the lighter side and should be enjoyed young. Food pairings depend on the dryness of the wine; picnic salads and lighter seafood are good choices.

Our Other White Hybrid category is specifically for less common white hybrids, or new and innovative white hybrid grape cultivars.
