St. Croix


This hybrid grape cultivar was produced in 1983 by Elmer Swenson, a pioneering grape breeder who introduced a number
of new cultivars that are hardy in the Upper Midwest. It was introduced by the University of Minnesota.
St. Croix vines are vigorous and produce medium sized, somewhat loose clusters of grapes. It has moderate to good
disease resistance, and is hardy to -28°F or better.
St. Croix grapes produce medium to full bodied, dry, deep red wines with low tannins, good fruity aromas, and have currant and other dried fruit flavor aspects. Production often employs oak barrel ageing to add even more complexity to the wine’s bouquet and flavors.

    Tastes like mostly Chambourcin, sour. Very dry, thin, only sour cherries on the finish. Not terrible but you're better off with a $5.99 merlot than this if you want a dry red. Read More
