Fall Creek Vineyards Lescalo Chenin Blanc 2019, Texas



Pale lemon in color, almost see through.

Very aromatic nose of white flowers, grapefruits, limes, green apples, spices, honey and minerals.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity.

Dry on the palate with lemons, citrus, green apples, grapefruits, spices, honeysuckle, earth, light river rocks and sea salt.

Tangy finish with light almonds.

This is a nice and easy drinking Chenin Blanc from Texas. Tangy and interesting.

The nose is kind of sweet, suggesting a sweet palate, yet it’s dry. Really enjoyed the nose.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with Ahi Tuna Sashimi.

This is a really nice Rosé from Texas. Easy drinking and nicely balanced, with a nice mouthfeel.

This is a nice surprise. This GSM blend is drinking very nicely now. Showing a great nose with a nice mouthfeel. Tangy and interesting. Soft and rich.

Good right out of the bottle and a good wine to have all by itself, or with food. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.
