Dry Comal Creek White Black Spanish

Dry Comal Creek White Black Spanish Wine Details
Price: $15.99 per bottle

Description: This blush is made from estate Black Spanish grapes and French Colombard grapes from California. Hints of Cherry, cranberry, and leather, this most unusual blush wine is demi-sweet, fruity, smooth and drinkable any time with anything. One of our best selling wines for good reason – a terrific ‘Texas Style®’ wine. Silver Medal winner in 2008 San Antonio Wine Festival Competition.

Varietal Definition
Better known as French Colombard in North America. Acidic grape crushed by some northern Californian producers and made into a fruity white wine of simple character in both dry and sweet versions. Mainly grown in California to provide acidic backbone for white "jug" wine blends. Still grown in France where it is used for white wine blends known as "Bordeaux Blanc" and is also used for distilling into brandy. Also widely grown in South Africa.
This red-fleshed grape is a popular variety in Texas, where it is sometimes blended with Ruby Cabernet to make red table wine. It is highly resistant to Pierce’s disease, which makes it a good match for the hot and often humid Texas climate. It thrives best in deep, sandy soils. Originally, Black Spanish was used as a wine at Communion. At one time, along with Mission, Lenoir was one of Texas’s most planted varietals. Acreage in the state is now on the decline, although it still maintains a presence in the state, particularly in the few wineries located near the Gulf of Mexico.


Todd says...
This is a great blush style wine. It is semi-sweet, with a strong fruit flavor and smooth finish.
