Our wine tonight is the Rustic Red from Wellborn Winery in Travelers Rest, South Carolina.
Produced of locally grown Chambourchin.
Light ruby in color.
Nose of fresh baked blueberry muffins, raspberries, passion fruit, dark cherries and the forest after a morning mist.
Flavor notes of tart raspberries, red currants, boysenberries, and a fresh hot cherry turnover, slight smokiness on the finish with a lingering tartness of a Christmas fruitcake.
This wine is racking up awards.
Gold medal winner in the 2019 Wine of the South Competition. Silver medal winner in the 2018 Palmetto Wine Competition.
