Dahlonega Gold

Dahlonega Gold Wine Details
Price: $20.00 per bottle

Description: Dahlonega Gold is specially created to celebrate the history and heritage of Dahlonega, Georgia - site of the first US gold rush in 1832. This "late harvest" style dessert wine is made from 100% Vidal Blanc grapes grown by Three Sisters Vineyards. Production is extremely limited. Almost as rare as gold, less than 1000 bottles were made in 2000.

Varietal Definition
Vidal Blanc:
A white French hybrid once widely planted in the south of France, it is more suitable for growing in warm and humid climates like the South. These vines are prolific, producing large golden berries, suitable for eating out of hand as table grapes. When vinified, Villard Blanc makes a fruity, mildly intense white wine (somewhat Sauvignon Blanc like) of fairly neutral and simple flavors. Primarily used for blending.
