Varietal Definition
Blanc du Bois:
Developed at the University of Florida for use in that state, this white wine-producing grape with a flavor similar to Muscat has had medal-winning success for somewhat Riesling-like varietal still wine and blends of sparkling wine. Developed by John Mortenson of the Leesburg Research Station, it is the result of a cross between a Florida-developed hybrid (thought by some to be a V. aestivalis complex derivative) and the Cardinal table grape. Fertile, productive and hearty, it ripens in early July in Florida. A coldy hardy varietal,it is also resistant to Pierce's disease, but appears particularly vulnerable to Anthracnose and Black Rot.
