Fall Creek Vineyards is likely one of the most venerable Texas wineries — to the purpose the place they’ve a three-letter area identify. Fall Creek’s white and rose releases aren’t your regular “summer time ingesting” fare. To show that, right here’s a have a look at two latest bottlings.
2020 Fall Creek Grenache Rose – No saccharine white zin fashion right here; this rose of grenache has an edge pushed by components of guava and papaya, shifting into strawberry earlier than ending with a pop of sharp, barely metallic earthiness. The wine is nice sufficient for informal sipping (with a touch of toasted marshmallow rising over time), but it surely’s ringed by a punchiness that means extra maturity than you may suppose. B+ / $16
2021 Fall Creek Roussanne – It is a very honeyed, extracted (and fairly yellow-hued) wine that exudes notes of lemon, tangerine, and inexperienced apple — earlier than the chewy honey notes utterly take over, echoing a cousin of Sauternes at occasions, sans the overwhelming sweetness. Wealthy and barely oxidized — all a part of traditional Texas white wine character — with notes of guava lingering. A bit odd, however fairly enjoyable. B+ / $25
