WBC’11 Speed Blogging – Llano Estacado Winery

Marguerite Barrett

Viviana 2009

Region: Texas – yes there is wine in Texas!

Four varietals: 30% Gewurtztraminer, 30% Riesling, 10% Viognier and 30% Muscat Canelli – all grown locally in Texas.

Nose: lovely nose with lush notes of honeysuckle.

Palate: In the mouth the wine is a bit of a surprise; I expected something slightly sweeter because of the nose, but it has stronger citrus notes balanced by notes of melon and tropical fruits – I caught a hint of pineapple.   The wine has a really nice acid finish.   Crisp and refreshing.

Retail price is $22.95

Distribute only in Texas, but you can order it through the winery website.
