Hudson-Chatham Seyval Blanc Hudson River 2006

Member Review by LENNDEVOURS:

Made from grapes grown in the Hudson Valley. Very pale yellow in the glass, the nose isn't overly expressive, but offers some sauvignon blanc-like aromas, including grapefruit, lemon and minerals. Seyval blanc often leads to lean wines, but I'd consider this one medium-light bodied. Tart bordering on sour, it's citrusy like the nose with an appealing wet-stone minerality. The finish is medium-long with a sour apple note that I didn't love. The nice acid backbone makes it taste very fresh and lively. It's very close to being really tasty, but that little bit of tartness that crosses over to sour keeps it in the category of summer sipper.

The Hudson-Chatham Winery is the dream of Carlo and Dominique DeVito, both publishing professionals who have long shared a love of wine. This exciting new winery, which specializes in small hand-made batches of wine, is dedicated to the richness of the Hudson River Valley, particularly its wine, agriculture, literature, art, history, and many other attractions that make it a rich and special region. The Hudson-Chatham Winery, located between the historic towns of Hudson and Chatham, is the first winery in Columbia County. As well as creating fine artisanal wines, the DeVito family (including two dogs), and many valued friends, have worked hard restoring the winery’s grounds and its prestigious circa 1780 farmhouse. The winery features hand-crafted wines, cheeses and desserts, and includes vineyard tours and a gazebo with scenic views. Read less
