With the folks from Habana Cigar Shoppe! Sunday, Sept. 3, 4 to 6 pm (on the other side of the tasting room from Side Show Willie).
Seyval Blanc is the most popularly grown white grape in the Hudson Valley. A hybrid wine grape variety used to make white a variety of light wines, its vines ripen early, are productive and are suited to fairly cool climates.Seyval blanc is grown mainly in England, the United States east coast especially in New England, New York and don through Virginia. Seyval Blanc was created either by Bertille Seyve, or his son-in-law Villard, as a cross of Seibel 5656 and Rayon d’Or (Seibel 4986), and was used to create the hybrid grape St. Pepin. Seyval Blanc has a characteristic citrus element in the aroma and taste, as well as a minerality. When done in stainless steel, it is very much like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio. When done it oak it may be compared to white Burgundy.
This edition is made using a blend of our own estate Seyval Blanc and grapes from throughout the valley. Made in stainless steel, it is light, bright, and lemony like a Pinot Grigio or a Sauvignon Blanc. A lovely, refreshing light white. Great for sipping, but an exceptional table white ready to serve alongside fish, poultry, cheese, salads and soups.
