What We’ve Been Drinking: July 2016

Another late posting, but we’ve been busy during the month of August! July was another hot month, but we found some great wines to keep us cool. We also made our way to another new winery in July! Roaring River Vineyards opened its doors in mid July so we couldn’t resist making a visit.   It was so peaceful and serene we didn’t want to leave!  We made a few other winery trips during the month and picked up another set of Riedel glasses during a special tasting event at Hanover Park.  It was a great way to beat the heat of summer!

Check out our Instagram for a recap of what we had during the month of July:

The palate is creamy tropical goodness with pineapple shining through along with hints of pear. This wine IS art!  #YadkinValley #NCWine #ncwgjuly2016

The palate delights with apple and hints of citrus peel and mineral undertones. It's well balanced and crisp!  A great wine for Monday evening!  #YadkinValley #NCWine #ncwgjuly2016

The flavors are bright and cheery, starting with lemon before it moves into an intense tropical creamy mid-palate. The finish is long and lingering with dried herbs and coconut. #YadkinValley #NCWine #ncwgjuly2016

The nose is full of vanilla with a touch of spice. The flavors are fruit forward with a toasty finish. #YadkinValley #NCWine #ncwgjuly2016
