Kan-gria – Parker-Binns Vineyard

Our wine tonight is the Kan-Gria from Parker-Binns Vineyard in the Tryon Foothills of North Carolina.

KAN-GRIA

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.

12% ABV

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!
