Varietal Definition
French-american hybrid grape widely grown in New York State (U.S.A). Used to produce fruity white wines of mild intensity usually vinified with a dry finish and also good quality sparkling wines. Mainly found in the colder northern temperate regions of North America.
Melody is a recent hybrid grape developed by the Geneva Research Station in New York State, used to produce light bodied white wines. Melody has yet to take any significant acreage away from the Cayuga in New York, but its cold hardiness and pleasant fruit and floral character have made it successful in the American Mid-West. Melody is a cross of Seyval Blanc with GW5 (Pinot Blanc x Ontario).
