Our 2016 Frontenac Gris is an off-dry white wine with a full fruit front and a clean finish. Balanced and complex, this wine retains more bright flavors of peach, soft citrus, and pineapple. A fun and elegant wine to share!
Grape Information: This wine is made from 100% FTF-grown Frontenac Gris grapes, which are resistant to temperatures as low as -38 degrees Fahrenheit. Years ago, the Frontenac variety produced a single, random bud mutation, and was discovered by the diligent researchers at the University of Minnesota. Thus, the Frontenac Gris was born (Gris, meaning”Gray,” indicates the grayish-pink skin color of the grapes). This variety grows like wildfire in our vineyards, and can be rather exciting to tame.
Suggested Pairings: Try it with big flavors like a yellow coconut curry, Latin-inspired dishes, or maybe some take-out Thai!
