Winemaker’s note: “Orchard fruits and white flowers with texture and acidity in full balance. Itasca is the newest white hybrid grape released by the University of Minnesota. Our home vineyard should be producing its first crop of Itasca for 2022, but we bought a ton of fruit from the Finger Lakes in 2021 to get some ideas.”
We love it with:
