Seyval Blanc Grape Varietal Definition
Seyval Blanc is a French hybrid that is often thought of as “East Coast Chardonnay,” or at least an alternative to same. Produced in a crisp, dry style, this white wine is often fermented or aged in oak to enhance the rather neutral flavors of the grape itself.
It lends itself to service at the dining table and is food friendly. Seyval Blanc is often used in proprietary blends; good examples can be found from Prejean, Clinton and Château Lafayette Reneau.
