STYLE: Colombard

Back to Styles List

Colombard was used extensively in production of Cognac but is now used mainly as a reliable base for large scale commercial blends primarily out of California. Colombard generally produces wines with low acidity, neutral aromas, and a crisp finish which makes it an excellent blending partner for more aromatic and acidic varieties such as Chenin Blanc.

Origin:
Presumably the offspring of Gouais Blanc and Chenin Blanc.

Wyeast Strains:
   4028 - Red (formerly Chateau Red™)
   4242 - Fruity White (formerly Chablis™)
   4783 - Sweet White (formerly Rudesheimer™)
