White Wines

 Seyval Dry White Wine2014 SEYVAL  $10  Dry

Made from an old classic French–American hybrid (Seyval blanc). This is a neutral white falling somewhere amid Pinot gris, Chenin blanc and Chardonnay, depending on the vintage. 

Flavors transition from grapefruit and green apple through pineapple and melon. In a special year, maybe 1 out of 6, we make a Reserve Seyval, which is aged in oak barrels.  Flavors in the Reserve are bigger and rounder and include ripe peaches, orange, almonds and hazelnuts.

Recommended Pairing: Heavy fish (tuna and salmon), shellfish, and spicy chicken dishes including wings.

Availability: In stock

 

 

  Joi White Wine

 

2015 JOI  Semi-Dry $12

A blend of Seyval and Muscat grapes. The former contributes body and structure; the latter, a captivating aroma of green apple, peaches in syrup, grapes, melons, pears, apricot, flowers, and fresh herbs.

Recommended Pairing: Milder Asian dishes, spicy chicken, or blackened fish.

Availability: In stock

 

 

 

 

Moonlight White

2014 MOONLIGHT WHITE  $10  Semi-Dry

This is a charming semi-dry white made from Cayuga, a grape developed by Cornell University. It is a medium-bodied wine with delicate floral and fruity aromas of grapefruit, apples, peaches, pineapples, and melons.

Recommended Pairing: Light chicken or turkey dishes, German sausage and pate'.

Availability: In stock

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dulcinea Sweet White Wine

DULCINEA  $10  Sweet                 

Seyval finished at 3% residual sugar, which is at the dry end of sweet. Balance between sweetness, acidity and aroma is what we are after. Temptingly sweet, with a nice, refreshing finish.  

Recommended Pairing: Simple dessert or very hot spicy food.

Availability: In stock

 

 

 

 

 

 Muscato White Wine

 

MUSCAT Sweet                

Made from a blend of three Muscat varieties. We finish the wine with enough residual sugar to balance that awesome Muscat aroma of peaches in syrup, grapes, melons, pears, apricot, rose flowers, and fresh herbs.   

Recommended Pairing: Stronger cheese like blue cheese or gorgonzola, or by itself.  

Availability: Not available at this time

 

 

 

FRONTENAC GRIS Dry

SUNSET NOUVELLE Sweet Dessert Wine

Frontenac gris is a relatively recent addition to the vineyard, and we are very impressed..  A cousin of the big red Frontenac, F. gris is a big, big white wine.   Dry or sweet, the wines are  loaded with tropical fruit, peaches, lemon and apricot.  We produce two distinct styles - a dry white and a late harvest dessert wine. Both styles have a long, ultra crisp finish. 

Recommended pairing for Frontenac gris: salmon, baked chicken and turkey.

Recommended pairing for Sunset Nouvelle: strong cheese (bleu, gorganzola ...) salty cheese (grating cheese), a wedge of orange or a hand full of walnuts.

Availability: Not in stock at this time

 

Carme Dry White Wine

 CARME' (Chardonnay) Dry

Our Chardonnay is named after the matriarch Millie (Carmela). Flavors range from citrus and apple in cool summers to pear, pineapple, peach and honeysuckle as the summer heat accumulates. Some vintages call for a little barrel time, but oak usually clashes with the fragrance. Therefore, we do not often oak our Chardonnay.

Recommended Pairing: Light fish, chicken or pork, and pasta with white sauces.
