My friends at HomeAway presented me with this beauty for my birthday and it remains one of my favorite Texas whites*. The Dry Comal Creek Bone Dry French Colombard is a full-bodied white with tropical notes and at first sniff, you would think it would be sweet. But it’s minerally and dry — just like the label says.
*As one might expect, Colombard is not widely grown in Texas. This is a wine “for sale in Texas only” which means its fruit comes from outside of the state. Thanks Dry Comal Creek for making a great wine from that juice!
