This wine was grown at Buena Suerte Vineyards in Meadow, TX on sandy loam soils with a hard caliche layer several feet down, typical of the High Plains. Though generally classified as poor agricultural soil, grapevines thrive here with abundant growth, allowing for better yields and a luscious canopy. The fruit was machine picked and fermented in stainless steel. After fermentation, the wine was aged in 40% new Hungarian oak to add spice and sweetness.
