8 Chains North Lo.Co. Vino Wine Details

Description: This is a 50/50 blend of Traminette and Vidal Blanc. This is a light bodied, fresh white wine with overtones of citrus zest, pear and apple. It is cold fermented in stainless steel and is the perfect compliment to flaky white fish, crab cakes or just a hot summer day!

Varietal Definition
'Traminette' is a late mid-season white wine grape which produces wine with pronounced varietal character likened to one of its parents, 'Gew├╝rztraminer'. 'Traminette' is distinguished by its superior wine quality combined with good productivity, partial resistance to several fungal diseases, and cold hardiness superior to its acclaimed parent, 'Gew├╝rztraminer'.
Vidal Blanc:
A white French hybrid once widely planted in the south of France, it is more suitable for growing in warm and humid climates like the South. These vines are prolific, producing large golden berries, suitable for eating out of hand as table grapes. When vinified, Villard Blanc makes a fruity, mildly intense white wine (somewhat Sauvignon Blanc like) of fairly neutral and simple flavors. Primarily used for blending.
