Blanc du Bois Dry

Blanc du Bois (Dry) Wine Details
Price: $9.95 per bottle

Description: This Premium wine is made from the Blanc du Bois wine grape variety grown in the Coastal Regions of Texas. These grapes were hand harvested in the cool morning hours. The grapes were crushed, gently pressed, inoculated with cultured yeast, and fermented at 55F to retain the fruit flavors that are characteristic of this variety. This wine is finished "DRY" and has a clean, crisp mouthfeel. It exhibits a fresh citrus finish and pairs nicely with poultry, cheese, and creamy pasta dishes.

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.
