My journey with TX wines continues...

YES! This is a killer effort of a Spanish varietal that is doing great here in TX! Many Spanish reds do well here, so I shouldn’t be surprised in regards to white varietals. I was skeptical at first as it was too cold...seemed like a run of the mill SauvBlanc, but this was wonderful once it warmed closer to room temp. Nose had a lot of melon, watermelon rind, honeydew, white flowers. Really nice texture from start to finish. Palate has more melon fruits, even some banana, and honeyed walnuts. Nice acidity...crisp, but not sharp. One of the best TX whites I’ve had. Very nicely done
@Ron Yates ! Looks like @Shawn R and I scored this the same!
