1836 White

Overview

On April 21st, 1836, in a part of Northern Mexico known as Tejas, a band of rugged pioneers won the historic “Battle of San Jacinto.” Shortly after this decisive victory, peace treaties were signed, and the independence of Texas was established. This white wine celebrates the spirit of those who fought for the great Republic of Texas. The 1836 brand is produced with the intent of showing the best of what Llano Estacado has to offer. The grapes sourced for this wine hail from our best vineyards in West Texas.

Our 2019 “1836 White” is an aromatic and richly textured blend of Viognier, Marsanne, Chardonnay and Roussanne. This wine was aged “sur lie” for several months and was also allowed to partially complete malolactic fermentation. Winemakers took these steps to enhance the complexity of aroma and elevate texture on the palate. 1836 White is medium bodied with aromas of peach, apricot, white flowers, honey, and a hint of citrus peel. Once in the mouth, it is rich in texture and demonstrates well balanced acidity.

Enjoy it with richer seafood dishes like Lobster, King Crab and cheese-based fondues.

This wine will continue to be complex in the bottle for the next 5-7 years. For optimal
drinking, decant before serving into a Burgundy style wine glass.
