New Product!

The perfect choice for Riesling fans. La Crescent is one of the University of Minnesota’s most popular cold-hardy grapes, with a flavor reminiscent of muscat (likely because it has Muscat Hamburg in its lineage). The fruit has high acidity, and can be used to make off-dry to sweet/dessert and late-harvest wines. Aromas are primarily apricot, peach and citrus. Vines of medium vigor are cold-hardy, disease-resistant and not susceptible to sulfur. Developed by the University of Minnesota and introduced in 2002. Ripens late September to early October. Self-pollinating. ‘MN 1166’ cultivar.
