Yellow straw color. Aromas and flavors of golden raisins, honey roasted peach, yams, and honey ham with delicate vinyl with a supple, tangy, off-dry light-to-medium body and a smooth, engaging, medium-long finish that exhibits notes of tangerine and pineapple relish, green apple, and white cranberry juice with fine, fruit tannins. Bright fruit and vibrant acidity combined with a touch of sweetness make this a great choice for spicy fish and poultry dishes.

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.
