Our 2014 Moscato Secco is a beautiful example of the subtle and complex characteristics this grape can show when presented in an off-dry style. Characteristics of floral, lemon, jasmine and orange blossoms are joined by flavors of pear, apple and tropical fruit. This wine is lightly textured with an underlying acidity and solid minerality that keep the flavors pure and sharp. Enjoy this wine with spicy curries, meats or charcuterie.
Our 2019 Pinot Blanc opens with a sandstone and banana nose. On the palate you will notice citrus overlaying a grapefruit pith with a dry clean finish. This wine is best paired with hard cheeses. The Divas also love to enjoy this wine with a splash of seltzer as a summer spritzer.
The summer of 2017 was an abundant year in the Texas wine industry. The resulting harvest from our vineyard Estate gave us an extra hundred cases of quality Pinot Grigio. In 2017, we continued our 2016 tradition of aging Pinot Grigio in Russan Oak. The time spent in oak results in a full-bodied wine with a lingering finish. Enjoy with seared scallops and raw oysters!
The newest vintage of Cuvee Blanc is a blend of Viognier, Muscat Blanc, and Blanc Du Bois. The beautiful tropical notes of Viogner with a hint of floral from the Muscat Blanc is most alluring. With 50% Neutral Oak aging, there is a softness that can only be achieved with barrel aging. Enjoy this quintessential white wine with a tower of seafood!
Vintage 2019 brings back the lovely floral nose of this warm climate varietal. Beyond the chamomile nose you’ll find lovely white peach and apricot on the tongue with a silky softness derived from the partially barrel fermented fruit.
The 2019 Rosé is comprised of 100% Sangiovese grapes harvested three weeks earlier than those picked for our Super Texan. Early picking helps the wine achieve optimal acidity for that beautiful Provençal style. The salmon color is mesmerizing and the white orchid aromas refreshing. On the palate you’ll noticed watermelon and candied cherry, a common thread in the Flat Creek rosé program. Toast to Texas sunsets!
Perfect to serve lightly chilled on a warm fall afternoon, the Dolcetto is 100% stainless steel fermented and aged leading into a fruit-forward red wine bursting with black cherry and licorice notes. Montepulciano, just 20%, is blended in adding structure to the wine.
The 2015 Super Texan was full of dark plums and blackberry. The 2016 Super Texan is turning back to its roots with that vibrant color, soft mid-palate and long spicy finish our followers have come to love. Cheers to our Signature Wine!
Introducing our first release of Texas Cuvee Rouge. Our initial Italian blend, released in 2016, was comprised of whole cluster Italian varietals purchased from the Sierra Ridge Vineyards in the Sierra Nevada Foothills of California. This new release is a blend of Texas High Plains Dolcetto & Zinfandel plus Texas Hill Country Petite Sirah. It is less austere and not quite as bold as our initial release...we hope you enjoy its welcoming Texas-style.
The 2015 Texas Hill Country Syrah is a blend of grapes from Flat Creek Estate and neighboring Hoover Valley Vineyards. Traditional blueberry and blackberry notes are blended with woodsy cedar to produce an aggressive Texas-style red wine. The wine begs for pork belly or Ukranian Aspic.
The 2014 Four Horsemen opens with aromas of thyme and juniper berries. The winter notes continue on the palate with a pleasant sugarplum and anise essence. The finish leaves your mouth salivating for more. Enjoy with Duck Confit or creamy blue cheese...we love the “Ewe Calf to be Kidding Me” cheese from Antonelli’s.
This more traditional Super Tuscan style blend derives its dark color and complex structure from the 24% Cabernet Sauvignon. It exhibits bright cherry and a baking spice finish. Enjoy with Osso Buco, Braised Lamb Shanks, or Meat-Based Pizzas!
This Old World style wine exhibits subdued fruit notes and an abundance of acidity. You’ll notice a slight licorice hint on the nose with moderate fruit aromas. The palate presents a soft tannic structure with a clean limestone finish. Enjoy with Bacon Wrapped Shrimp and a side of Guacamole.
There aren’t a lot of growers we trust to grow Cabernet Sauvignon in Texas. It is a challenging varietal to grow in the warm Texas environment, but Neal Newsom has mastered it. His initial plantings in 1986 are among the oldest producing vines in Texas. Their age and extremely low yields are apparent in the concentrated flavors found in this wine.
This full-bodied, dry red wine is exactly what Texas Cabernet Sauvignon should taste like. Brick red in color with traditional licorice notes and none of the bell pepper notes that can be an indicator of under-ripe fruit. Cellar a few cases so you can pop a cork every time you enjoy that Texas steak hot off the grill!
This richly tannic wine expresses Petite Sirah’s traditional blackberry jam characteristics with an underlying smokiness. The bright acidity and supportive oak fill the mouth and balance the intense tannins. Enjoy this wine with venison, wild boar or other hearty meats.
The 2014 Barbera expresses similar crushed violet notes of the 2013 but, with the addition of fresh cut grass and lavender aromas. Rustic meats and porchini mushrooms would be an excellent complement to this wine.
The slight effervescence in this frizzante-style muscat blend changes what can sometimes be an overly sweet wine into a tantalizingly flavorful pairing for fruit salads, key lime pie, and summer afternoons. The frizzante-style has been a signature style for our muscat blend since 2012.
After a nine year hiatus, the Muscato Blanco returns to the Flat Creek Estate portfolio. The 2019 vintage is bottled in a new 750 ml bottle our fans are sure to love. Relish the lovely white peach and citrus notes of this wine on a warm summer afternoon. It’s low alcohol and semi-sweet style are perfect for sipping poolside.
This unique dessert wine is crafted from fresh pressed Muscat Canelli juice racked into small oak barrels and fortified with grape brandy. The result is a luscious Mistella bursting with aromas and flavors of orange marmalade, lemon zest, peaches and apricots. Enjoy as an aperitif or after dinner paired with a rich apple tart.
Bottled in 2017, the Port VIII is ruby-garnet in color with aromas of plum pudding, rich dark chocolate, blackberry preserves and cigar. The palate delivers sweet spices and flavors of dark currants and prunes. A classic match for sharp crumbly cheddar, dark chocolate or a good cigar.
