Pedernales Texas Viognier

2014 Texas Viognier
The 2014 Texas Viognier has been awarded the accolade of Top Texas Wine at the 2016 Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Wine Competition. Pedernales Cellars will receive its award saddle at RodeoUncorked! in February 2016. This is the second award saddle won by the winery, the previous being in 2013 for the 2012 vintage of the Texas Viognier. The 2014 Texas Viognier continues Pedernales’ tradition of highlighting the intense aromas and flavors possible from a Texas Viognier. This is a particularly important vintage after a 2013 season that could not support a 2013 vintage release. For this 2014 edition we continue our tradition of a rich and fruit forward Viognier wine with a nose delivering grapefruit, peach, and melon as well as notes of vanilla and butter.
