2018 Fall Creek Vineyards Terroir Reflection Tempranillo Salt Lick Vineyards Texas Hill Country

2018 Fall Creek Vineyards Terroir Reflection Tempranillo Salt Lick Vineyards Texas Hill Country

It's true that the Texas Hill Country has some of the best winegrowing soils on the planet, in this case, cretaceous. It's also true that the unrelenting Texas heat can sometimes be an impediment to greater winegrowing achievement here. Enter the Tempranillo grape variety, already familiar — and comfortable, too — with warmer weather winegrowing given its experience in the hot and arid environs of Rioja in northern Spain. The soils in the nearby Salt Lick Vineyard are of clay and loam on top of weathered limestone, 'deep and rich in nutrients due to nearby Onion Creek flooding over the years.' Produce of 100% Tempranillo, lovely medium deep ruby in color with complex aromas suggestive of plum and black cherry and our own Texas Hill Country limestone rich soils with a touch of sweet American oak (that Tempranillo so seems to favor); medium full in body, just this side of rich with nice intensity and persistence of flavor that confirms this a world-class effort. And it's grown a mere half hour's drive from here. Yay!

2018 Stone House Vineyard Claros Norton Reserve Texas Hill Country

2018 Stone House Vineyard Claros Norton Reserve Texas Hill Country

Stone House Vineyard produces Claros from a small, well-tended vineyard near Spicewood, Texas planted to the Norton grape variety, believed to be the oldest American grape cultivar in commercial production. Deep dark ruby red in color with aromas suggestive of bright crunchy berry fruits, cinnamon bark and a friable earth together with and an almost indescribable vinosity; medium to just full in body; cool and caressing with fine, supple, silken texture and crisp bright berryish flavors that well oblige another pull. Stone House Vineyards Claros is long a favorite of ours here in beautiful, downtown Austin, Texas, and seems now to be hitting its real stride.
