Featured Wine

Pedernales Viognier Reserve

2014 Texas Viognier Reserve
We are very pleased to have recently released our 2014 Texas Viognier Reserve. The most recent previous vintage of this wine in 2012 won Grand Gold at the 2013 International Wine Competition in Lyon, France. The nose on the 2014 Viognier Reserve is a rich blend of honey, rose, and peach with additional notes of caramel and acacia. On the palate you can detect vanilla, toast, and butter and an excellent balanced finish. The wine pairs well with spicy regional cuisine, as well as chicken and pasta dishes.
