LOVE ON OUR FEATURED WINES THIS MONTH!
2016 Arabian Sangiovese
Sangiovese originates from the Italian Wine grape with its name derived from the Latin sanguis Jovis, meaning “the blood of Jupiter”. This varietal of fruit arrives from the Texas High Plains and then aged for 26 months in stainless steel tanks at the Triple R Ranch by our winemaker, Ron Ross.
This wine is considered to be the American version of a Chianti. Our 2016 Arabian Sangiovese, has a beautiful day bright color of Ruby red. Upon opening you will sense dried cranberries, candied Bing cherries, with a note of tobacco and spice. The mouth is already watering for a taste!
The rich flavors of the well developed Sangiovese burst with the fig and candied cherries. There is a richness of minerality of red clay loam tracing their way to a pleasant acidity and smooth finish.
We enjoy pairing this wine with a rich tomato sauced pasta as well as pizza with roasted vegetables. You will find this wine quite refreshing and enjoyable as a Springtime Sipper.
2017 Whitetail Chardonnay
Chardonnay is a green skinned grape and is used to make the most popular white wine on earth! This varietal is very diverse and can range in flavor from rich buttery to a super zesty. The style of processing is what gives this beautiful grape a variety of tastes.
The Triple R Ranch 2017 Whitetail Chardonnay, was aged for over 12 months in stainless steel tanks with fruit from California. Our winemaker Ron Ross creates a premium wine even with his whites.
At first sight the lovely star bright, yellow gold color captures your attention. Then the easing of the cork out of the bottle and the nose catches the aroma of melon, banana, and even pineapple. Your palate will experience a boldness of these creamy layers along with green apple.
The finish is long, crisp and acidic. You will enjoy pairing this delicacy with lemon and rosemary chicken as well as grilled snapper! Bon Appetit!
