Seyval Blanc is a hybrid white-wine grape that is a cross between Seibel 5656 and Rayon d’Or. It can appear golden white, light green, or straw colored in the glass and you often detect fresh herbs on the nose. The taste shows citric acidity and a hint of spice.
The best Seyval Blanc we tasted from Missouri is the 2019 Augusta Winery Estate Bottled. We did detect herbs on the nose and found the wine to be crisp and refreshing with tropical fruit flavors and an even finish. This wine is at its peak right now and should be consumed over the next six months. Very satisfying.
