    Default The Wine Thread

    yeah, we had to revive that!

    Ok, normally I am a red wine girl. Not picky, the 3 dollar bottle tastes just fine to me, I won't turn down the 12 dollar one....


    However, I found a locally produced wine.
    Reluctantly I bought it.
    The fact that I could have been hammered for the week on the equivalent $$ in 'fluppes' was one point...that I never had this grape was another: Muscadine.

    The reason I bought it was that I have actually driven past the vineyard. beat me to death with my own arms, I would not be able to tell you the way - I think - but I know It did see the place.

    The flavor is different than anything I ever tasted that called itself wine.
    It is more like a liqueur, almost syrupy.
    it is not sickeningly sweet, but not tart either. Very strange to my taste buds....

    (me thinks I need to ask the people for a tasting...)

    Haha, I found out about those when I was in NC! I'm only familiar with the sweeter varieties, but I think they also make dry wine out of it.

    It's very common in NC, I wouldn't try to acquire a taste for it, it's pretty atrocious :-)

    It's a dessert wine

    Try it cut with a bit of club soda, over ice. Lovely summer refresher!

    Muscadine I think are native American grapes...sounds like this is a late-harvest "icewine" type (those are the only kinds I'd call syrupy as opposed to just sweet.) I can't say I like them, but then I also don't like the Moscado wines, which seem to be trendy.

    it is labeled as 'table wine' something that would have never reached the thresh hold of our home back in the day....but Old World terms differ.

    The stuff isn't bad. Just very different!
