Peach – Boardwalk Winery

Our wine tonight is the Semi-Dry Peach from Boardwalk Winery in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

The nose is soft and pleasant, reminiscent of peaches in syrup. Flavor notes are true, with hints of cinnamon on the tip of the tongue. The sweetness and acidity are nicely balanced.

The label features a beautiful beach scene.

Peach – Huffman Vineyards

Our wine tonight is the Peach table wine from Huffman Vineyards in Richlands, North Carolina.

Fermented of peaches.

Color of sweet tea.

Nose of a cooled peach cobbler.

Semi-sweet, guessing about 2-3% residual sugar.

Flavor notes of peach cobbler, caramel, vanilla, and sarsaparilla…giving way to a lingering finish much like a Werther’s Original hard candy.

Labeled as table wine which by law means between 7 and 14% ABV. We’d guess this wine approximately 8% ABV.

Certainly not your traditional peach, but good.

Plum – Lazy Bear Winery

Our wine tonight is the Plum from Lazy Bear Winery in Easley, South Carolina.

Lazy Bear Winery producers REAL fruit wines and meads.

Yes, this plum is produced from 100% locally sourced plums.

This plum exhibits color characteristics of a White Zin, perhaps a light plum.

The nose is not overly expressive yet subtle and pleasant.

Semi-sweet.

The taste is amazingly reminiscent of Christmas plum pudding, with hints of citrus and nutmeg. The finish one of lasting smooth decadence.

12% ABV.

This small craft producer has racked up an impressive array of awards. We strongly encourage you to check them out in the upstate of South Carolina.

Open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday each week.

Bursting with blackberry flavor on the tongue, just like a hot blackberry cobbler right out of the oven, fading with a slight tartness and subtle earthy tones.

9% ABV.
