176395martaDry Blanc du Bois offers a light and elegant white wine that we consider a local treasure. Aromas are delicate with shades of white linden blossom, peach and pear which are interwoven with lemongrass. Flavors abound, making our mouth delight in green apple, citrus and grapefruit. We believe our dry Blanc du Bois is an excellent argument for supporting locally made products. Paired with local seafood cuisine, it’s a match made in heaven.12/13/2012
7591JaneGarveyAtlantaGeorgiaUSAThis wine represents your New Year’s resolution for 2013: To explore new varieties and new regions. Developed by the University of Florida for that state’s viticulture and released in 1987, Blanc du Bois is named for Emile du Bois, a Frenchman involved in viticulture in the Tallahassee area in the late 19th century (for more on all this see an upcoming blog post on the subject). Located in Santa Fe, Texas, near Galveston and the Gulf of Mexico, Haak Vineyards & Winery produces a stellar example. A medium-bodied dry white wine with a medium greenish yellow straw color, the wine presents aromatics that recall Sauvignon Blanc, especially New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, with a perfume of white grapefruit (although not as aggressive as some NZ examples and lacking the classic tomato vine notes they often present). The palate picks up the white grapefruit character and adds accents of lemongrass and lime. With good acidity, moderate ph, and moderate alcohol, this is an excellent aperitif wine as it will awaken and refresh the palate. Serve moderately chilled, about 55F/12C in medium-sided tulip-shaped white wine glasses.

Suggested Food Pairings:
Miniature crab cakes with lemon fresh herb aïoli, herbed goat cheese; Asian dishes with seafood or chicken (but not hot); shrimp pot stickers or shumai with shrimp; cocktail potatoes stuffed with sour cream and chive; seafood-stuffed pasta with butter and herbs or salsa verde (olive oil, a little garlic and herbs); three-year-old Manchego cheese (flat awesome!). The winery also suggests honeydew melon and green salad.
