A bright and fruity nose with notes raspberry and blackberry and subtle hints of black pepper. The palate is fresh with acidity which lingers throughout the mouthfeel. Flavors of raspberry and wild blueberry with a buttery lasting finish.
Aromas of lemon zest and ripe pear tantalize the nose with subtle floral notes in the background. The palate is brightly acidic upfront and as the acid softens, flavors of white peaches and mild herbaceous tones come through and fade out into a pleasantly ripe finish.
This estate grown French-American hybrid grape has been vinified into a wine full of tart cherry and cranberry followed by light oak. Bright fruits and bold acidity lend this wine to be consumed lightly chilled or at room temperature.
While Léon Millot has been grown in the Finger Lakes for decades, it is rare to find it as a varietal wine. This complex French-American hybrid grape is an artful balance of soft acid and smooth tannins with hints of black pepper and an earthy finish.
