This Chenin Blanc is grown in the Texas High Plains, the premier growing region in our State. While most of our Chenin Blanc is used in our Friends with Benefits (Chenin Blanc + Viognier) blend, we portioned two barrels for this special project.
Fermented in barrel and aged for 3 months, this wine features soft vanilla and honeysuckle on the nose and a gentle, round mouthfeel afforded by partial malolactic fermentation. Subtle acidity and minerality balance the wine and brighten the palate.
An extremely unique and limited wine.
This Texas blend is predominantly comprised of Merlot sourced from the Texas High Plains, a region with enough altitude to free grapes from scorching Texas heat, and generate gentle juicy watermelon notes, with hints of black pepper. Dark, rich and chalky Malbec help minimize edgy tannins and leave a more refined, velvety mouthfeel.
While Malbec has found a new fan base obsessing over Argentine production, Merlot has long carried the load in red blends without enjoying much credit. This wine is a salute to hard-working individuals who don’t need all the fanfare or selfie-likes. A true Texas Work Horse.
