Home to Majek Blanc Du Bois Dry White Wine and Majek Cardinal's Kiss Black Spanish Rose'.
Our team creates the highest quality wines that represent the best of Texas terroir in a range of styles to satisfy many palates, from novices to sommeliers.
Majek Wines are made from 100% Texas grapes, grown in our Estate Vineyard, grown by other nearby grape farmers, or procured from the Texas High Plains. Our Estate Vineyard consists of Blanc Du Bois and Black Spanish vines. Majek is considered a leader in the development of fine wine from these varieties.
Our winemaker is Tim Drake, formerly of Columbia Crest and Chateau St. Michelle in Washington State. Tim has managed vineyards and wineries in TX for the last 10 years. When he began a wine consultancy 4 years ago, we jumped at the chance to work with someone of his caliber. Tim creates and manages our wine program.
We are proud to present our Spring 2022 portfolio for your enjoyment.
One of our flagship wines. Our Blanc Du Bois block of vines was planted in 2013. As we have outgrown our grape production, we have supplemented our grapes with fruit from the Smith Family Vineyard in Witting, located about 10 miles from our vineyard.
This dry Blanc Du Bois was grown at Smith Family Vineyard in 2021, after the Big Freeze. Majek didn't have a Blanc crop after the Big Frieeze. The grapes were pressed at Majek and aged in Stainless Steel tanks for 1 year. This aging yielded a bright, light and citrusy wine, in a style similar to Sauvignon Blanc.
With our winemaker, Tim Drake, we have experimented to find the perfect wine style for Black Spanish. Black Spanish has a very storied history in Texas, having been grown in the State for over 300 years, grown by the Maverick family in San Antonio, etc.). Due to its natural acidity, it is sometimes difficult to craft a delicious Black Spanish wine.
We now offer three styles of Black Spanish, which are absolutely delicious presentations of the grape. Cardinal's Kiss is a Rose' style wine, grown by the team in our Vineyard, pressed, fermented, and bottled on the property. One of our first "end-to-end" wines.
Cardinal's Crown is one of our original wines, named for our mascot, the Cardinal bird. Every year, it is crafted as a table wine, which we mean as a classic dry red wine that goes with everything! This year's vintage is a smart blend of 45% Petite Verdot, 20% Syrah, 15% Malbec, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petite Sirah. 100% Texas.
Our delicious Tempranillo was grown and harvested at Whistling Duck Vineyard in Dublin, TX. After press and fermentation at Flat Creek Winery in Marble Falls, it was transported to Majek, where it rested in oak barrel for 2.5 years. Weare proud to offer you this excellent example of dry Tempranillo wine, grown by our friends at "The Duck".
Tannat is a grape originally grown in France, most widely grown in Uruguay. It is very well suited for the Texas climate and terroir.
Our Tannat was harvested in 2019 at Paka Vineyard in Brownfield, Terry County, Texas. One year in Oak, bottled at Majek on February 4, 2021. Held in bottle until Oct 11, 2021.
Silver Medal Winner - 2022 San Antonio Rodeo Wine Competition.
Opal, named for a gemstone in the Czech Republic, is a semi-sweet blend of Orange Muscat and Muscat Blanc. Orange Muscat is a grape that has strong notes of citrus and orange. Fantastic floral front note, with long citrusy end note.
Majek Riesling is a nicely balanced semi-sweet/off-dry white wine. Bottled in February, 2021 at Majek from fruit grown at Paka Vineyard in the Texas High Plains.
There are four wines named after our mascot, the red bird - the Cardinal: Cardinal's Crown, Cardinal's Kiss, Cardinal's Choice, and Cardinal's Friend. Cardinal's Choice is one of our original sweet wines. Every year, the blend is anchored by Muscat Canelli (everyone's favorite sweet wine, Moscato) and a red variety. This year's vintage is crafted from 50% Muscat Canelli, 25% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre, 10% Orange Muscat.
Cardinal's Friend is the most recent of our Cardinal series. As we began the business, one of our credos was that we would have wines to satisfy the palate of every guest. Whether a preference for dry, sweet, red, or white wines, we would have a nice selection of delicious wines for your choosing.
Cardinal's Friend is a nicely balanced sweet red wine, made of 100% Texas Cabernet Sauvignon.
Our Port-style Black Spanish Dessert Wine was created from the 2014 harvest and rested in oak barrel.
Half of the wine was bottled in 2019, while the other half was left in barrel and bottled in February of 2021.
