What We’ve Been Drinking: May 2016

Summer is almost upon us and the North Carolina wine has never tasted better! May was warm and our selections were a bit heavier on the whites and rosés. But still, each bottle showed what NC can produce and how it really is an exciting place to be for new wines.

Check out our Instagram feed for a recap of our May selections.

Instagram post 17856613039000382 Tonight we're having another Chardonnay in preparation for National Chardonnay Day. This time it's the 2014 Chardonnay from Hutton Vineyards! This lightly oaked Chardonnay is very fruit forward with a bright acidity to it. The flavors are of fresh apple and have a light caramel finish. #YadkinValley #NCWine #ncwgmay2016

The flavors are of dark cherries and vanilla with a warming toasted oak on the mid-palate. The finish is light, yet lingering finally ending on a brûléed fruit note. #YadkinValley #NCWine #ncwgmay2016
