LaCrescent's intense nose of apricot, peach, and citrus lends
itself to superior quality off-dry or sweet white wines. Produced in a
Germanic style, LaCrescent wine is reminiscent of Vignoles or Riesling.
The grape's high acidity provides good structure for excellent
dessert or late-harvest style wines.
