Founded in Lubbock in 1988, CapRock Winery is in the Texas High Plains AVA. Sold earlier this year - for the second time in three years - CapRock is one of Texas' biggest wineries. Like many Central and West Texas wineries, CapRock specializes in Spanish, Italian and Rhône grape varieties.
This Moscato has a yellow-green tint and an aromatic nose of flowers, pears and peaches with a slightly herbal note underneath. I was surprised by the little hint of petrol in the background, very much like a Riesling. It's on the sweet side and the fruit is the star of the palate. Sweet peach, nectarine and pineapple juice flavors reside in a nectar-like setting. It's rather viscous, and completely delicious.
