Rustic Red – Wellborn Winery

Our wine tonight is the Rustic Red from Wellborn Winery in the Woods in beautiful Travelers Rest, South Carolina.

Produced of locally grown South Carolina Chambourchin. 75% Estate grown at Wellborn Winery Vineyard and 25% grown at Calico Vineyards in Travelers Rest, South Carolina.

Chambourcin is a French-American hybrid with deep purple skins.

Vintage 2019

Aerated. Did not decant.

Ruby in color with a bright purple rim.

Aromatic nose of fresh baked blueberry muffins, elderberries, raspberries, and chocolate covered cherries.

Semi-sweet.

Medium mouth feel, juicy acidity, with a low tannin structure.

Layered notes of tart raspberries, red currants, cinnamon spice, pepper sauce, and a fresh hot cherry tart, slight smokiness on the finish with a lingering tartness of a Christmas fruitcake.

12% ABV

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.

  1. Thanks for the kind review. Actually it is 75 per cent Wellborn estate Chambourcin. Our friends at Calico Vineyard only currently supply 25 per cent of the Chambourcin. We hope they will have more in the future,
