Symphony (grape)

Symphony (grape)

The Symphony grape is one of dozens of new grapes bred by Dr. Harold Olmo, Professor Emeritus of the Department of Viticulture and Enology at the University of California (Davis). Its development began in 1948 and was completed and introduced commercially in 1981. It was patented in 1983. It is a cross between Muscat of Alexandria and Grenache Gris.

The grape makes a white wine with a slight spiciness and pleasant fruit aromas, sometimes including citrus or apricot and peach. It is most often used for blending, due to its ability to bring out aroma and flavors in other wines. It has been made on its own in limited quantities and is planted in limited amounts. Producers of Symphony wines include Ironstone, Chateau De Baun, Sebastiani, Hamilton Oaks Vineyard, Oak Crest Winery in Virginia and Michael~David Winery in Lodi, CA.
