Our wine tonight is the Kan-Gria from Parker-Binns Vineyard in the Tryon Foothills of North Carolina.
Estate grown red wine with natural spices.
Color of freshly squeezed cranberry juice.
The nose is tropical with hints of pink grapefruit and red plum.
Fruit forward profile bursting of red berries such as huckleberries, mulberries, and wild blackberries with pomegranate and bing cherry. Mid-palate unmask hints of citrus, blood orange, lime, and cilantro. The finish shows soft notes of lavender, vanilla, and strawberry.
Sangria is a Spanish term describing a mix of red wine and fruit! Sangria is really booming at craft wineries as a summer drink of choice. Could Sangria replace rosé as the next big summer wine? We think so!
Parker-Binns jumped ahead of the curve canning their sangria…..uh Kan-Gria!
Don’t be afraid to blend with a little coconut rum!
