I worked on the blending of this wine and wasn’t sure I was going to be a big fan of it. I’m not a big fan of Cayuga but have recently had wine with Cayuga blended in and it wasn’t bad.
With an open mind and palate I tasted Whitecliff’s LaGrange White. The nose is nothing remarkable, hint of grape and wet stone. Palate has hints of peach with a nice balance in the acidity.
Cayuga tends to be a grape with high acidity. With 4% residual sugar I wasn’t sure what to expect. The sweetness balances out the acidity nicely and gives the wine a nice rounded mouth feel without tasting overly sweet.
The wine sells in the Whitecliff’s tasting room for $15.95 bottle.
