Our wine tonight is the Baby Doll Legs from The Cottage Vineyard and Winery in Cleveland, Georgia.
Rosé of Blanc du Bois
Blanc du Bois is a Hybrid grape cultivar developed at the University of Florida.
Blanc du Bois wines can be difficult to achieve a commercially acceptable clarity and is therefore often used in blends. We suspect this wine was lightly blended with small percentages of estate grown Syrah and Merlot.
Brownish orange in color. Shows long thick legs legs more expected of a red wine.
Aromas of pink lemonade, orange, lemon zest, and honeysuckle.
Semi-sweet with a moderate mouthfeel, notes of citrus explode prominently on the palate, pink grapefruit, orange, tangerine, pink lemonade, and finishing with a subtle woodsy tone and hints of vanilla ice cream and can pears.
Produced under the consultation of iconic North Georgia winemaker Joe Smith. Nathan Beasley is the assistant winemaker learning as an apprentice under Joe’s tutelage.
The Cottage Vineyard and Winery sits atop a North Georgia mountain offering stunning views.
