Texas Wine Co. – Church House Texas Moscato

With its silky texture and long citrusy finish, the Viognier has quickly become one of McPherson Cellars’ trademark wines. Fermented entirely in stainless steel to accentuate the fruity nature of the grape, this light-bodied, dry wine highlights hints of honeysuckle and citrus in every glass.
