Sweet and delicious! Rich dark plum notes. — 16 days ago
Mid Ruby in colour. Aromas of cherry, spice and mushrooms with a note of dried meat. White pepper on the palate but not much on the nose strangely enough. Medium weight palate - northern Rhone in style - very different to the fruit driven styles in the Barossa and McLaren Vale. For around 35 years this has been one of my favourite reds in Australia. Wine was first made on this site in the 1860’s. Pat Carmody and his wife Dianne replanted the site in 1976 retaining the beautiful old blue stone gravity fed winery from the 19th century. An icon of Australian wine from small production - probably not a lot exported. This is the first of 6 purchased, so great times ahead! — 14 days ago
This Port-style wine is made from 100% Muscadine grapes, but the winemaker says they were not Alaska-grown. The wholesaler which provided the juice to him could not pinpoint where they were grown. The Muscadine grape is fairly popular in the humid southeastern states.
I’ve had Muscadine wine before - from Alabama - and it was less than spectacular. This wine is actually pretty good. The nose is huge with strawberry and a mercifully faint whiff of Muscadine. The palate is close to great. Alcohol at 17% abv keeps things lively, while the earthy red fruit flavor hits a nice savory note.
