2005 Palomino-Chardonnay

2005 Palomino-Chardonnay Wine Details
Price: $49.50 per bottle

Description: The unheralded Palomino variety and its perfect marriage to the harsh growing conditions of Texas was one of our early surprises in the 20 years of research. Our Palomino vineyard is located 80 miles east of Dallas on the shores of Lake Tawakoni in Hunt County where the geologically older, calcareous soils react with this grape to produce a minerality that is rare in American white wines. The extremely low yields of one half ton per acre produce a concentrated, nectar-like quality that is unlike any other variety. We blend this wine to achieve the richness and intensity of the Palomino with the complexity and structure of Chardonnay resulting in an Estate-style wine comparable to the Burgundian Classics.
