Lewis Wines - 2015 Swim Spot

Lewis Wines - 2015 Swim Spot

Composition: Blanc Du Bois, Muscat Canelli, and  Viognier; from the Texas High Plains and East Texas

Price: $14 at Lewis Wines in Johnson City

Notes:  Grapefruit on the nose and on initial taste, followed by honeydew melon and lingering minerality. Bright acidity, lighter body and some effervescence makes it a food friendly and enjoyable easy drinker.  Swim Spot is a good example of how Texas wineries are closing the quality/price gap with wines from more established wine regions.  I'd put this wine against any California Sauvignon Blancs at this price point.
