It’s about that time, Houston! Medal winners from the 2016 International Wine Competition at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo are in stock at your neighborhood H-E-B. Goodtaste stopped by The Cellar at San Felipe to sample three ‘best in show’ varietals.
FYI The Cellar always have 16 wines available for tasting any time!
Traditions 2013 Riesling
juicy | spicy | zesty
This single vineyard riesling is a Double Gold Medal Winner as well as Class Champion & Region Class Champion for the Pacific Northwest. Well-balanced with lively acidity; a 90 Rated wine for only $9.98!
2014 Red Wine
big | bold | smooth
Billhook’s Rhone-style blend from the coastal hills of Santa Barbara County is a Gold Medal Winner with beautiful bright fruit flavors and nice spice on the finish. A great BBQ wine! Love this lighter style that retails for $19.98 at H-E-B.
deep | rich | smoky
An Australian addition to our list…dark and exotic berries, full-bodied. The shiraz is a great pairing for lamb or ANY smoked meats really. 😉 A Gold Medal and Reserve Class Champion.
