Aromas of lemon, white pepper, chalk, crushed stone and white flowers are fresh and inviting on the nose. The chalky, delicate palate is mineral driven and bathed in fresh squeezed lemon flavor. White flowers and herbal notes are on the fringes, while tingling acidity melds with some textural roundness. This delectable wine is a perfect match for oysters.
In Italy, Vermentino is grown predominately on the island of Sardinia and on the mainland in Liguria, where it is blended with Trebbiano. Vermentino is amber-yellow and a vibrant, crisp, light-bodied wine with fruity and slightly herbaceous aromas. This is the perfect white wine for Texas (especially during the summertime!) Filled with zesty citrus, almond, and crushed stone notes the balanced, refreshing wine is an easy go-to.
An homage to the leading red grape of Spain, this Tempranillo blend marries the savory, tobacco, and red fruit elements evocative of its homeland with the bright, earthy, dark fruit characters of the Texas High Plains. Spanish for heritage, La Herencia, deftly balances brawny flavors with an elegant structure. Tart black plum and concentrated red cherry aromas are framed by aromas of smoky cigar box. Judicious use of oak reveals hints of vanilla and cedar, leading to a soft, yet earthy finish. A great pairing for grilled meats or mushroom risotto.
An homage the traditional field blend from many of Italy’s iconic regions, the “IFB” marries the best characteristics of celebrated Italian varietals Sangiovese, Montepulciano, Dolcetto, and a touch of Alicante. With rich notes of dusty raspberry, Bing cherry, dried fig, and cocoa powder, this wine is an instant palate pleaser. Its broad, yet playful structure makes it an easy patio sipper and a perfect pairing for a range of dishes from street tacos to lasagna.
