The Texas High Plains is the second largest AVA in Texas, comprising roughly 8 million acres in west Texas, mostly south of the panhandle region. The eastern border of the Texas High Plains AVA follows the 3000ft elevation contour line along the Caprock Escarpment, the steep transitional zone separating the High Plains from the lower plains to the east. The elevation within the Texas High Plains gradually increases from 3,000 ft. to 4,100 ft. in the northwest portion of the AVA. This positioning provides an environment of long, hot, dry summer days, which allow the grapes to mature and ripen to proper sugar levels, and cool evenings and nights, which help set the grapes’ acidity levels. Grapes and wine have been produced in this region since the mid-1970s and vineyards here have become the major grape supplier to wineries throughout the state. There are over 75 wine grape varietals
planted in the High Plains AVA, including Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc, Gewurztraminer, Grenache, Merlot, Malbec, Dolcetto, Mourvèdre, Sangiovese, Tempranillo, and Viognier.

Winemaker Notes
We aged this wine in a combination of new and older French Oak barrels to round out the fullest expression of this wonderful white grape. Viognier benefited from malolactic fermentation as well as sur-lie aging to round out the mid-palate and provide an overall balanced and smooth finish.
Food Pairing Notes
Shellfish – crab, prawns, scallops or lobster. Spice-rubbed chicken or turkey as well as braised or roasted vegetables, Moroccan dishes or mild curries.
