2017 San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo Wine Competition
Reserve Champion White Wine
Top of Class
As the first winery to introduce Viognier to Texas, Becker Vineyards has always sought out the very best example of this fruit. The grapes for the 2014 vintage came to us from both the Bingham Family and Diamante Doble Vineyards in the Texas High Plains.
The wine is slowly fermented, taking 40 days to complete. The yeast was chosen for both its compatibility with the cold style of fermentation, and its ability to bring out the floral qualities of the Viognier grape.
One of the trickiest white grapes to harvest, Viognier exhibits perfect perfume and rich flavor. As a winemaker and passionate Viognier advocate, I can truly say we did our jobs well this year. Our success will be your delight. Our 2014 Viognier is one of the most seductive and alluring wines we've made. The heavy melon, apricot nose and the full mouth feel of this golden honeyed nectar will caress your senses with unabashed forwardness of true Condrieu style Viognier.
