NC Wine Month 2016

September is North Carolina Wine and Grape Month! Each September, we will be focusing our attention toward North Carolina Wine (even more than we do now)! For 2016, we will be posting daily to our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram feeds.  We will be making a recap of everything we’ve tasted. Links will be posted here after they’re up.

In the meantime, check out  Instagram  to see how people have been celebrating #NCWineMonth!

Instagram post 17849686796041159 Opened this bottle of Burntshirt Vineyards Estate White Wine 2018 yesterday evening to mark the start of #NCWineMonth! This wine consists of Vidal Blanc, Chardonnay, and Petit Manseng. On the palate, tropical, citrus, and stone fruit notes. Honey and sweet spices are also notable mid-palate. This wine is light and crisp, with some balancing sweetness.

This time of year is perfect on the warmest days for enjoying a glass of this wine. I recommend serving it chilled nicely for the best experience.

Instagram post 17847925577116126 Tonight we’re enjoying the 2019 Gwinn from @addisonfarms! This Petit Manseng is full bodied and fruit driven.  Fresh peaches and apricots make up the nose. Fleshy ripe peaches come through on the flavors with a juicy mid-palate and finish. It lingers on with a hint of honey. #NCWine #NCWineMonth #GotToBeNC #DrinkLocal #OpenLocalWine

La vie en rose' 🥂 How about  one from North Carolina? Well, this lovely gift from #unwinedonwhite was the perfect bottle to open last night. A delicious rosé made from Grenache grapes, fruity and fresh with the slightest  hint of tannins; it paired well with my risotto (which also got a splash of the same wine in the cooking process). 💦😂💦

Thank you burk525 for introducing us to the Jones von Drehle Wineries! It makes studying fun! 😉🥂

Instagram post 17855837638965852 Celebrating North Carolina Wine Month with this yummy Sangiovese from the Swan Creek AVA, within the Yadkin Valley region. Had the 2015 back in 2017 and after a few years it’s tasting really nice. This Carolina Chianti is made using the appassimento method of drying grapes to concentrate the juice. The resulting wine has a smooth texture, medium body, and medium acidity. Bright juicy flavors of black cherry, black plum, red cherry, cedar, leather, and some minerals. Firm tannins on the long finish. Paired well with chicken parm and would go well with lamb or beef 🍇🍷
.

Roughly $20 and well worth it 😋
Rating: B+
