A Couple of Texas Wineries You Should Follow!
|Find A Texas Winery|
Now for the real purpose of our adventure out in the rain…Texas Wines. There were four wineries represented and two deserve comment.
|Lone Oak Wines|
Lone Oak’s Viognier was also very nice. This is increasingly becoming my Texas white wine of choice. Viognier is a French grape that can produce complex wines, noted for its floral flavors with spice and citrus. They are also known for their fruit forward flavors of apricot, peach and apple. Because they are highly aromatic and fruit forward they go well with spicy food…hello Texas!
|Duchman Family Wines|
The other Duchman wine was a Vermentino, which is an Italian white wine grape that makes dry, light and crisp wines that are herbal, with citrus leaf, basil and pine nut aromas. They are rich medium body wines that have a tinge of pale straw color, often with pronounced minerals and flavors of green apples and lime. They go well with seafood, oysters, calamari, white fish and grilled vegetables. However, I also felt the Duchman Vermentino would go well as a standalone wine to have with friends.
Unfortunately at tastings like the one Sigel’s had Saturday you really do not get enough of any wine to determine its complexity and how it would really taste as a glass of wine or with food. However I did get enough to know that these two wineries are worth watching to see where they go with their wines. And if I am ever in the Burleson or Driftwood area, you can rest assured I will visit the wineries for a more in-depth taste!
