Making Fine Texas Wine

McPherson Cellars wines are grown within the Texas High Plains AVA part of the High Plains sub-region of the Great Plains, stretching from Amarillo in the north to the New Mexico border and extending just south of Lubbock. Kim McPherson is a well-know Texas wine maker. As well as owning his own label, McPherson Cellars, he’s been instrumental in moving the industry forward, consulting for many of the wineries across the state. By way of example, they feature Spanish and French (rare for Texas) grape varieties, this is Texas wine making at its finest.

Texas Terroir

Equally, Kim advocates the importance of growing varieties that best fit Texas terroir and “planting to the land” which focuses on Mediterranean and Rhone Valley varieties that he feels are best suited for the warmer climate of Texas.

Furthermore, the prestigious Texsom International Wine Awards has recognized McPherson Cellars wines, including their Chenin Blanc, Roussanne, EVS and La Herencia. If you’re in or passing through Lubbock, or looking for a place to host an event I recommend McPherson Cellars. One of my favorite wines that I pick up at my local HEB is the Sangiovese. It is described by the winery as having aromas of ripe dark cherry, dark plum, and boysenberry framed by dusty earth, powdered cocoa, and dry, savory herbs. The palate reveals an elegant structure with gentle grip and a long, savory finish.
