Fall Creek Vineyards Grenache Rosé 2020, Texas
Happy National Rosé day!
Very light salmon in color, almost see-through.
Pretty strong fruity nose with yellow apples, peaches, citrus and spices.
Medium plus in body, buttery and smooth, with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with citrus, lemons, green apples, grapefruits, spices and white pepper.
Tangy finish with limes.
This is a really nice Rosé from Texas. Easy drinking and nicely balanced, with a nice mouthfeel.
A great wine to have all by itself or by the pool. Not bitter, which I really liked.
I paired it with cheeses and crackers.
100% Grenache grapes are grown on clay and limestone soils.
13% alcohol by volume.

Laser focused - very well made and built for the long haul. This bright ruby red and translucent Grenache took 1-2 days to open up from its reductive slumber. Given grenache’s propensity to oxidation - one can tell the fruit and wine were handled with care. 15% whole cluster. Seek this team out @grosgrain — 2 days ago
I LOVE Alban wines. This is my first experience with their single vine Grenache. Wow was i impressed. Deep purple hew. Rich and luscious. Popping red fruit with a massive nose. I did open this earlier than i would normally, so the acidity level was high. Mouthfeel was full and left a 40 second finish. A few years in bottle this could easily get to 98-99 pts. — 5 days ago
