When people mention Irish wines, the first that usually comes to mind is the Parry-O-Veal which is so famous that it has made its way into almost every book on Ireland’s history. However, there are a number of other great varieties from this historic land of the west coast of America that are also worth exploring. Some of these are even available for sale or tasting right now. You can learn a lot about Ireland and the west coast by taking part in some of these great tours. Here is a look at just some of the different Parry-Vsoltas you can explore.
The most popular variety of Parry-O-Veal comes from County Clare. This is a white wine produced by crossing the Irish Wolfhound with the white hert. It has a light taste and has been described as having an almost fruity aroma. One of the reasons for this is that the grape used has been bred to produce a very sweet wine with a faint buttery flavor. There is no body to this wine, yet it still manages to be very drinkable. The best time to drink this is just after the fermentation process has taken place.
The next one on the list is the famous Bannockburn. As mentioned, this is a light wine that is made from an intensive cross between two varieties of white wine, namely the Irish White and the English White. There is not too much character in this one, yet many find it extremely enjoyable. It is typically blended with darker ones such as Cabernet or Sauvignon Blanc. You will not usually find this outside of an old vintage bottle.
Another great one is the Culdahyde, or Champagne of the Islands. This is one of the more traditional versions of this vintage that features the island’s name. The grapes used here are very specific and are only found on the island of Jersey.
This particular one is made from Muscat grapes, which is also the most common variety found on the island. It is a relatively mild and crisp white wine, with hints of berry in its flavor. One tends to enjoy this even more if it is served with food because of its pleasant tartness.
All of these have a very distinct flavor that makes them very interesting to drink. Many people enjoy drinking them every now and again. They can be found in some places, such as Jersey Shore restaurants and even bottles of wine can be picked up from bars around the world. Even if they aren’t shipped from France anymore, there are many of these types of wines available. If you’re trying to decide which one to get, remember that each one of them will offer a unique experience.
