Dry Comal Creek “Bone Dry” French Colombard 2011

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!
