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 2017 “1836 White” is an aromatic and richly textured blend of Viognier, Roussanne, and Marsanne. This wine was aged “sur lie” for several months and was also allowed to complete malo-lactic 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 honey, mango, chamomile and a hint of citrus peel. Once in the mouth, it is rich in texture and demonstrates well balanced acidity. Enjoy this fine wine with sea bass, lobster, crab, or rich chicken dishes.
