Wedding Oak Winery Introduces Three New Wines for Wildseed Farms
We’re excited to introduce three new wines to our portfolio of Texas wines. Taking inspiration from our beautiful new facility right in the middle of the iconic wildflower fields of Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, Texas, we present our new Wildseed Farms series of wines.
2015 Baby’s Breath
Baby’s Breath is a delightful blend of fragrant white grapes including Riesling, Roussanne, Muscat Canelli, Verdehllo, Viognier, and Vermentino grown in the Texas High Plains. The wine was fermented in stainless steel to retain the fresh fruit flavor of these varieties. Baby’s Breath has wonderful floral aromas from the Riesling and rich honeyed pear from the Roussanne. Fresh citrus flavors greet the palate and it eases into lovely flavors of candied lemon peel, baked apples with cinnamon, and firm minerals with a clean finish.
This off-dry wine has a beautiful balance of bright acidity and a hint of sweetness to pair gorgeously with mussels, oysters and other shellfish prepared with garlic, tarragon and Herbes de Provence.
2015 Sweet Alyssum
Sweet Alyssum is a lively blend of the aromatic Muscat Canelli, Riesling, Roussanne, and Orange Muscat grapes grown in the Texas High Plains. It is incredibly fragrant with ample pear, orange peel, and dried flowers scents that set a cheery tone. A blend of primarily Muscat Canelli and Riesling gives this wine fresh flavors of ripe pear, navel orange, honey dew melon and a floral finish that fills the mouth with abandon.
The slight sweetness of this wine makes Sweet Alyssum a great accompaniment to spicy foods like Thai noodles, pasta arrabiata, and shrimp diablo.
Winecup is a bold, semi-sweet red wine made with a blend of Montepulciano, Dolcetto, and Sangiovese, harvested in the Texas High Plains and transported to, where they were crushed and cold soaked overnight in San Saba. It was fermented to dryness, and aged in neutral French oak barrels for two months. The prominent Montepulciano in Winecup makes a bounding wine with loads of juicy black cherry, blackberry jam, along lively red cherry flavors from the Dolcetto and Sangiovese grapes. This blend of Italian wine grapes is definitely a fruit bomb. The Winecup has just enough sweetness to balance the firm tannins and to give it a velvety soft, toasty finish.
The fresh fruit flavors and touch of sweetness make this an excellent wine for a backyard barbeque. Try it with grilled burgers or ribs made with raspberry chipotle glaze.
These three wines are available by the case or bottle at Wedding Oak Wineries at Wildseed Farms in Fredericksburg, Texas. The Sweet Alyssum will be available at the winery tasting room in San Saba, Texas. They are also available online: https://weddingoakwinery.com/wines.
