October was Texas Wine Month and I had a chance to try three wines that I wanted to highlight. As many of you know, while my blog is named Dallas Wine Chick, I cover the wines that I enjoy. Earlier this year, I rediscovered the exciting things going on at Pedernales, Wedding Oak and Duchman.
Of the wines I highlight – one is red and two are white.
The 2009 Times Ten Cellars Cathedral Mountain Vineyard Tempranillo – one of the #dallaswineaux crew recently brought this wine to a tasting. As fun side note, she had personally helped to harvest this wine. It was absolutely delicious and unfortunately no longer available, but it showcased the best of Texas wines.
The 2015 Wedding Oak Albarino – loved the notes of lemon zest, tropical, citrus fruits with herbs. What a delightful crisp and dry wine that I will definitely keep on my future buying list.
The 2013 Mont Sec Sauvignon Blanc – What? A Sauvignon Blanc from Texas with true notes of grapefruit and lemongrass. I really enjoyed this wine that I didn’t even know could be grown in Texas…
