Rustic Roots La Crescent

2021 La Crescent


Style: Minnesota Semi-Sweet White
Gold, 2020 San Francisco Chronicle Wine Competition
Gold, 2021 Finger Lakes Wine Competition

A University of Minnesota developed wine grape, La Crescent is now quite widely known for producing delicious aromatic wines often reminiscent of its shared genetic heritage with the Muscat grape. Ours is no exception, featuring intense ripe peach and pineapple flavors with a panoply of floral aromatics including rose, jasmine, and lemon blossom. This is one of those rare wines that tastes just like it smells. The wine is clean and pure and inviting; the sweetness is perfectly balanced by refreshing natural acidity. As wonderful as it is on its own, it can also pair with a multitude of lighter fare, fresh seafood, salads and soft ripe cheeses.
