Seyval Blanc

(a.k.a Seyval)

Well suited to cool climates, this popular French-American hybrid is the second most planted vine in England, behind Müller-Thurgau. The variety is also popular in Canada and the eastern U.S., particularly New York State. Reliably productive and an early ripening (usually mid to late September) Seyval Blanc is made into crisp white wines, with no foxy flavor, or sometimes into off-dry versions where the tart nature of the variety is balanced with residual sugar. Some producers have employed such enhancing techniques as barrel fermentation and/or aging, and malolactic fermentation to improve the quality of its sometimes neutral character and lack of intensity. The fruit is highly susceptible to botrytis bunch rot.

Sadly, Seyval Blanc (like all other hybrid varieties) was outlawed for “quality wine” designation by vinifera-obsessed European Union authorities, ostensibly, for quality reasons. This is a controversial issue for the English wine industry, where the variety has proved to Read more »

  • There is a winery in Mt Vernon that makes a beautiful St. Vincent, and Seyval Blanc, Montelle makes a delicious Seyval Blanc, and I have even had a good Cab Franc on occasion.  And I do like the Norton, in particular, Bommarito in New Haven.  Also, there's a guy in St. James, Heinrich, who is an old German in overalls and a beret who makes delic...

  • Banner Elk Seyval Blanc NV

    Snoothrank:

    Very pleasant North Carolina Seyval Blanc. Reminds me of a mini Reisling, some floral notes, a touch of sweetness, slight apricot, not much acidity but a decently balanced white wine. This paired very well with crab cakes and snow peas. Read More

  • Lovingston Seyval Blanc 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Heady tropical aromas of pineapple, mango and banana warm into juicy floral bliss. Crisp, minerally and just a touch acidic. Tropical notes aren't my favorite so I'm unlikely to purchase a bottle of this, but it's a good example of a varietal somewhat particular to the Eastern US. Read More

    My first taste of Seyval Blanc left me unimpressed thanks to a creamy mouthfeel. I prefer crisper, more acidic wines. Read More

  • Frontenac Point Vineyard White Blend Finger Lakes Frontenac White NV

    Snoothrank:

    The Frontenac White (Seyval Blanc) is a very nicely balanced white wine that is not overly dry. This wine is a medium bodied, white wine that is crisp, and refreshing with what I found to be a semi-dry to a dry wine with a slight citrus taste. I could taste a green apple flavor and possibly some sort of melon. The finish of the Frontenac Whi... Read More
