TXwine Twitter Tuesday, May 26th 7-8p CT – Texas Cabernets & Chardonnays – Taste-Tweet-Repeat-Retweet & Hasta Luego!
Join us on May 26th 7-8p CT for our final installment of #TXwine Twitter Tuesday for right now. Texas winery tasting rooms are starting to open up again – three cheers for Texas wineries and consumers for weathering the Corvid-19 storm. This week we are featuring your favorite Texas Cabernets (Sauvignon, Franc and blends) and Chardonnays.
For this week’s tasting, please focus on Texas Cabernets which are made in many forms: Single varietal wines, Bordeaux-style blends (with Merlot, Cab Franc, Malbec and Petite Verdot and sometimes Carménère, and Tex-Med Cabernet blends with Italian, southern French and Spanish grape varieties. Texas Chardonnay is a difficult “animal” to corral due to many vineyard and climatic factors; but, when it is made right, it has proven to be outstanding. You make your selection(s) and show us what’s in your glass. Remember to Taste-Tweet-Repeat-Retweet!
