Pennsylvania Wine Land Guide - 13

RIESLING
(REES-ling); European
Riesling is common across Pennsylvania, but
varies greatly in flavor profile based on region.
Wines from the NorthWest region have a
sweet peach flavor with a crisp sourness,
while SouthCentral varieties have more
citrus and floral notes. While traditionally a
sweeter wine, drier styles are increasing in
popularity throughout the state. Riesling's
sweetness and high acidity makes it a perfect
accompaniment to spicy foods.

SEYVAL BLANC
(say-VAHL BLAHNK); Hybrid
Seyval Blanc is famously resistant to cold
weather. A neutral, citrusy white wine variety,
Seyval Blanc is similar to a French Chablis,
and provides a refreshing accompaniment to
light salads, shellfish dishes, and mild cheeses.

STEUBEN
(STOO-ben); Hybrid
The Steuben grape, like many hybrids, can
be grown in any region of the state. Similar
to Concord and White Zinfandel, Steuben
is spicy and sweet, with hints of honey, and
described as "grape juice with a kick". Its
sweet, gentle flavor pairs well with briny and
spicy dishes like linguine in clam sauce and
Thai peanut sauce.

SYRAH

(sih-RAH); European

Shiraz drinkers, take note: Shiraz and Syrah are
actually two names for the same grape. Syrah
can vary in flavor depending on the weather.
Warmer growing seasons produce a jammy,
red fruit flavors, while cooler growing seasons
bring out chocolate, coffee, and earthy notes.
Syrah is softer in mouthfeel compared to a
Cabernet and pairs well with lamb.
