Mirey Creek Blush – Huffman Vineyards

Our wine tonight is the Mirey Creek Blush from Huffman Vineyards in Richlands, North Carolina.

Huffman Vineyards is a small family owned and operated vineyard and winery. We ventured into Huffman on a Thursday afternoon during our recent Eastern North Carolina Winery Escapade. The Mother is the artist whom’s artwork is featured on the label. The tasting room features a gift shop full of exceptional original artwork and whimsical wine gifts.

This blush is blended of estate grown Carlos (White) and Noble (Red) muscadine wines.

Dull orange in color.

Nose is distinctively muscadine, yet not pungent, lightly floral with hints of wet forest.

Semi-sweet.

Flavor notes of apricot, raisins, dates, almonds, and earthy tones.

Labeled only as table wine, we’d guess around 11% ABV.

$9 a bottle at the winery.

Cape Blush – Truro Vineyards

Our wine tonight is the Cape Blush from Truro Vineyards In Cape Cod. Many thanks to our niece and nephew for this beautiful bottle of rosé.

As a big fan of lighthouses, absolutely just lovin’ this lighthouse shaped bottle. We think it’ll look great displayed with the bottle lights in it.

Light salmon in color.

Nose of pink grapefruit, blood orange, vanilla bean, and strawberries.

Off dry.

Blend of 92% Cayuga and 8% Cabernet Franc.

Flavor notes of fresh sliced grapefruit with a distinct tartness, freshly squeezed orange juice, tangerine, kumquat, papaya, strawberries, meyer lemon, key lime, and finishing like a bananas foster.

11% ABV.

$20 per bottle.

Part of their Lighthouse Series—composed of Cranberry Red, Diamond White, and Cape Blush. All featuring bottles shaped like the iconic lighthouses of Cape Cod.

Truro is located in Southeastern Massachusetts, at the “wrist” of Cape Cod.

Kaya Blue – Kaya Vineyards and Winery

Our wine tonight is the Kaya Blue, Merlot blush, from Kaya Vineyards and Winery in the Dahlonega Plateau AVA.

A crisp light semi-sweet blush with a tempting nose of red currant and flavor notes of strawberries and ripe cherries.

Kaya Vineyard and Winery is a rebirth of closed Blackstock Vineyards. One of the largest and oldest vineyards of the Dahlonega Plateau featuring stunning views from of the surrounding North Georgia mountains.
