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.

  • Chateau Croix Esperence Lussac St Emilion 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Merlot based bordeau. Great color and was a very young 2005 with lots of life left. Aroma of dark fruits and an earthy dampness. On the palate some dark fruit and hints of cherry along with that earthy dampness that was evident on the nose. The tannins were subtle. So easy to drink. My only regret was that the finish was rather short. Read More

  • Château la Croix Saint Benoit 2003

    Snoothrank:

    Just opened this 2003 La Croix Bonis St. Estephe -- yum! The time in the bottle definitely softened what was likely to have been a bit dry and tannic. Lovely aromatics....dark cherry flavors. I really liked this wine. 90 pts for me. Read More
