We are once again, so very proud to release the Chardonnay Reserve, grown by the talented Drew Tallent of Mason County, Texas. The result of a 20+ year relationship, Tallent Vineyards and Becker Vineyards have produced fabulous wines, vintage after vintage.

The Chardonnay vines, a burgundian clone, was chosen by Drew for it's flavor profile and tenacity to ripen well in the Texas sun. For this vintage, both primary and malolactic fermentation took place in French Allier barrels, aging sur lies, allowing silky, subtle mouthfeel balanced with nuances of toasted oak. Yellow apples and Meyer lemon fruit dominate, while white cloves and warm vanilla notes finish. This wine will pair wonderfully with any dinner of white fish or shellfish as easily as chicken pasta or grilled white meat.

One of the best chardonnays I have ever had. The reason I joined the Becker Wine Club!
