To make up for lack of quantity, we were able to order grape juice from a provider in New York. The grape juice cultivars that we ordered are some of the same we had planted in May. Here is the rundown of what we have fermenting now...
Common Wine Characterisitics
Brianna: pineapple nose and flavor, grapefruit, tropical, floral. Usually produced as a semi-sweet wine.
Traminette: similar to Gerwurztraminer; spicy and floral.
Concord: strong, grapey aromas ("foxy"), likely will blend with Catawba for a semi-sweet to sweet blend.
Catawba: another strong, grapey wine, blending with concord.
We also received blueberry and raspberry.
