Estate Vineyard ∞ Chehalem Mountains AVA Seyval Blanc
~65 cases expected. $40 | PRE-ORDER
The first and only planting of Seyval Blanc in the Willamette Valley (second in Oregon), Helios is named for Carl Nielsen’s “Helios Overture, Opus 18.” Grown in Bells Up’s vineyard, this hybrid wine grape is found mainly in the Midwest – our former home – and East Coast. Although unrelated to Sauvignon Blanc, Helios shares many similarities in flavor and texture.TECHNICAL NOTES
