Battlefield White

Battlefield White Wine Details

Description: Combined with a variety of Vidal Blanc & AlbariƱo grapes grown predominantly in northern Portugal, our Battlefield White also known as our "green wine", produces a lightly colored but aromatic and high acid full-bodied wine that often exhibits ripe citrus and stone fruit flavors.

Varietal Definition
Albarino (known as Alvarinho in Portugal where it is used to make Vinho Verde). White wine grape variety, used to create a serious varietal wine with pleasant citrus fruit aroma, widely grown in regions of N.W. Spain and also in northern Portugal. Thought by some to be a Riesling clone originating from the Alsace region of France.
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.
