In the spirit of Regional Wine Week I picked up a bottle of Brimstone Hill 2010 Seyval Blanc. Brimstone Hill Vineyards in located in Pine Bush. They are a small winery and have over 10 acres of vines planted.
I like the Seyval grape, it’s crispness and citrus notes and I found that in this 2010 vintage from Brimstone Hill. It had some floral notes on the nose as well and distant hint of bananas. The color I wasn’t to keen on. Usually Seyval Blanc is very pale yellow if that. This color was a little to golden to me.
The taste was a bit bland for me, but it did have hints of tropical fruit and guava. I was looking for a bit more.
I wouldn’t hold onto this wine, if you have it in your cellar, I would drink it now.
