Naughty and Nice – Duplin Winery

Our wine tonight is the Naughty and Nice from Duplin Winery.

Holiday white wine blend of Scuppernong, Muscadine, and what I think to be Niagara.

The scuppernong is distinct.

Nose of ripe bananas, lemonade, green apples, honeydew melons, and a stuffy mildewed room.

Sweet, syrupy.

On the palate notes of overripe bananas, honeysuckle, rubber cement, lemonade, almonds, and pixy stix, with lingering back of the mouth sticky notes of honey and lemon cough syrup.

10.5% ABV

$10 a bottle.

This wine is certainly complex.

Duplin Winery In North Carolina is the largest muscadine wine producer in the world.

Milk House White – Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard

Our wine tonight is the Milk House White, a scuppernong wine from Baker Buffalo Creek Vineyard just outside of Shelby, North Carolina.

Non-vintage.

Fermented of 100% scuppernong grapes.

The state fruit of North Carolina.

Color of 24 karat gold……. just polished!

Intense musky nose, hints of honeysuckle, lemon, citrus, and butterscotch.

Distinctive sweet flavor notes of lemon, lime, honeysuckle, dandelion, green apples, bananas foster, and cheap brandy, with a long bold finish reminiscent of eating wild scuppernongs right off the vine.

Labeled as table wine (7 – 14% ABV). I’d guess close to around 10% ABV.

The scuppernong is a native Muscadine variety. The fruit is a large berry, bronze in color with amazingly thick skins. The oldest cultivated vine in the U.S.A. Is the Mother Vine, a 400 plus year old scuppernong vine in North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
