Wine Tasting at Vintner's Hideaway - June 8
June 4, 2019
The good folks at Vintner's Hideaway in Fredericksburg have invited us to be the "featured winemaker" at a special wine tasting on Saturday, June 8th from noon to 4pm. We look forward to serving and talking about our complete lineup of 2017 wines, including the award winning Monastrell. The lineup also includes our Viognier and Tempranillo wines, and possibly our San Antonio Rosé. In addition to our wines, there will be charcuterie and cookies, plus Vintner's Hideaway's complete selection of Texas Craft Wines. It's sure to be a lot of fun and we look forward to seeing you there.
Wine Profile: " Monastrell"

The Monastrell grape is a varietal originating in Spain and grown in many regions around the world including France, Australia, California, Washington and Texas. In the U.S. it is more commonly known by its French name, Mourvédre.

Monastrell is considered a somewhat tannic grape due to its thick skin, which also makes it ideal for warm climates. This particular wine has somewhat concentrated flavors because a portion of the juice was removed from the skins prior to fermentation to make a rosé, leaving less juice with more skins. This gives it fuller body and in my opinion, more intense flavor.

This wine presents aromas of dark fruit, chocolate, pepper and a hint of violet. On the pallet you may taste blackberry, spice, herbs, with some earthy and gamey flavors that allow it pair very well with grilled beef or wild game. As the wine is maturing, it also appears to be expressing more of the fruitiness that it may have lacked early on.

Since its release in January, the Monastrell has quickly become very popular and our best seller. Unfortunately, it is a very small batch and we're most likely going to sell out of it within the next couple of months. If you have any interest, please visit our website to see where it is available to sample and purchase, or you can simply purchase it directly from the website and we can ship it to you.
